200ml coconut cream

Add Pernod to the pan and cook out for a minute to reduce. Add the crabmeat, stir together and allow to heat through. Add the pasta to the crab mixture, fold through with the spring onions and lime juice, divide between warm plates and serve immediately. Serve with a generous helping of shaved coconut flesh toasted with sambal oelek.
