For the Crème Fraîche
Combine ingredients in a non-reactive container, cover, and let rest in the refrigerator until thickened for 12-24 hours. Keep refrigerated up to 2 weeks.

For the Ceviche
The night before, combine diced fish with the orange, grapefruit, lime and lemon juice. Mix gently though thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate overnight until fish
is “cooked”. Combine garlic, tomato, coriander, Saison, ginger, shallot and chilli. Mix gently, cover and place
in a refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Once the fish is opaque, gently squeeze and place in a separate mixing bowl, discarding the citrus juice. Strain the tomato mixture, then combine with the fish. Gently mix together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread gem lettuce leaves out on a platter, place a dollop of crème fraîche on each leaf followed by a spoonful of the ceviche mixture.
