  1. Evenly spread saffron threads at the bottom of a small glass and top with 1 teaspoon of water.
  2. Place into a microwave oven towards the edge of the carousel with 200ml of water in a large glass at the opposite edge.
  3. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  4. WARNING - the water may be superheated - allow to rest 5 minutes before touching either glass.
  5. Remove the small glass and transfer the saffron / remaining liquid to a small mixing bowl (or for a single serve just leave in the glass).
  6. Mix through sour cream, lime juice and chopped chives mixing well and place in refrigerator while salmon cooks.
  7. Rub olive oil over the salmon and sprinkle with pepper.
  8. Cooking using your preferred techique, I grilled them on a BBQ plate over medium heat for about 7 minutes a side.
  9. Spread (it is quite thick) mixture over the salmon and serve with your favourite salads and side-dishes.
