    Peter J's Note:

    A variant on a recipe I found in a magazine. I was a little disappointed in the original version because the time spent versus the end result wasn't worth it. I think this was nicer and much, much quicker - so try and see if you agree ;-).

      WARNING - the water may be superheated - allow to rest 5 minutes before touching either glass.

      Wow! This was such and easy, tasty and elegant dish. I made as written except for using Greek yogurt for the sour cream and definately will serve this to company! I grilled the salmon as suggested. Thank you for posting. Made for the Aussie Swap.

      This is a really nice recipe. The salmon is simple and tasty with a fancy sauce to top it off! I grilled our salmon and loved the results. Next time, I think I would try either a thick yogurt or mayo instead of the sour cream. I thought the sour cream kind of overwhelmed the saffron. I loved the water/saffron technique!!

      This is one of those recipes that really deserve more than 5 stars. The saffron cream makes this dish elegant and so tasty. The salmon was cooked on the grill as suggested. Greek yogurt was substituted for the sour cream. This will be made again and again. Thanks Peter for an outstanding recipe. Made for Aussie Swap.
