Saffron Salmon Soup

This sounds like a rather unusual soup, but the flavours merge beautifully; it also makes a perfect starter for a family Yom Tov meal.

Saffron is derived from the flower of the saffron crocus. To produce 12g of dried saffron 1kg of flowers are needed, making saffron the most expensive spice in the world.
