      Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in your 12 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter a little at a time.
    16. 16
      Season with salt and pepper and then stir in the saffron.
    17. 17
      Place your saucepan over the hot water you set aside in another pan, to keep your sauce warm.
