For the crab: Break crab up with a few forks until all the meat is evenly shredded and bite sized. Place in a nonreactive bowl and mix in celery, lemon juice, sour cream, mayonnaise, and chives in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper, taste and add more sour cream and mayonnaise, if desired.
For serving: Top each radish slice with a small spoonful of the crab mixture then garnish with some zest and chives, and serve immediately.
