For the pickled turnip

- White wine vinegar
- Sugar, to taste
For the butter and ponzu dressing
- 10g dark soya

- 1tsp lemon juice
- 1tsp lime juice
- 1tsp mirin
- 100g butter
For the peanut brittle
- 200g sugar

- 4 slices granary bread, frozen
- Foraged beach herbs, blanched and refreshed (eg sea beet, purslane, samphires if in season)
For the crab: pick through the crab, ensuring that there is no shell, bind the crab meat with duck egg yolk, add a pinch of chives and season to taste. Chill and reserve.
For the avocado emulsion: place the egg yolk, peeled avocado and lemon juice in a blender and blend on its lowest speed. Once emulsified, slowly add the oil until it forms a mayonnaise-like consistency. Pass the emulsion through a sieve, check the seasoning and the acidity and adjust if necessary. Reserve.
For the pickled turnip: slice the peeled turnip on a meat slicer or mandolin in to wafer thin slices. Place in a small sous-vide bag together with a dash of vinegar and a sprinkle of sugar, compress on full compression.
For the butter dressing: mix all the ingredients together, except the butter, to make a sauce. Heat the butter to beurre noisette stage, leave to cool slightly, then add and mix with the ponzu sauce.
For the peanut brittle: combine the sugar water and glucose in a pan and boil to 160°C or a light caramel. Add the peanuts, remove from the heat and turn out on to an oiled surface or silicone mat or paper. When set, blitz to a fine powder.
For the bread: On the meat slicer, thinly slice some granary bread from frozen, brush with melted butter and bake in the oven at 160°C for six minutes until crisp and golden.
For serving: assemble everything on a plate as per photo.
