Peel the plantain and slice, very thin, on a slicing machine or mandolin. Fry in hot oil and remove. Slice the cucumber the lengthwise, on a mandoline or slicing machine.
Place the cucumber slices down 1 at a time and place a 1 tablespoon of crab mixture on 1 end. Then slowly roll it up and stand it up on its end.
Garnish with crumbled pieces of fried plantains and chervil.
