To make the horseradish granita combine 350g of the infused horseradish cream with the milk and salt and mix together thoroughly.

Meanwhile, blanch the tomatoes in boiling water and refresh quickly in iced water. Carefully remove the skin and seeds from the tomato, reserving the seeds for garnish

Mix 50g of the horseradish cream with the white crab meat and fill the tomatoes with the crab. Seal the stuffed tomatoes in a vacuum bag and leave for ten minutes

To serve, divide the stuffed tomatoes between six plates.
