Trim and peel lower portion of asparagus spears and simmer in boiling water for about 5 minutes or until tender. Keep warm. In a pan, combine scallops, sherry, orange juice, saffron, fish broth, butter, salt and garlic. Simmer at low heat until scallops are just cooked. Be careful not to overcook or scallops will become very tough. Remove scallops from pan and thicken sauce by adding some roux, a little bit at a time, until desired consistency. Remove pan from heat, add cooked scallops, and finish by stirring in sour cream. Arrange asparagus spears in a triangle on plates and fill the centre with scallops and sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds, and a small pinch of dry saffron.
