After my visit to Portland Shellfish I thought I would prepare my favorite crab starter, asparagus & crab salad. This incorporates crème fraiche, fresh lime and Dijon mustard to give a wonderfully fresh dish. This recipe made just enough for three, you will need to buy another dressed crab or buy cartons of white & brown meat.
