Saffron cream sauce

Here is the promised recipe for a wonderful saffron cream sauce.

It goes very well with fish and seafood, while for vegetarians it works well with tofu but also simply with rice or any other cereal. It also tastes good with boiled eggs.

It is easy and quick to make. I always use both, saffron powder and saffron threads. The powder because it gives more colour and the threads because they are so beautifully decorative. Since the saffron will be cooked in this dish, I do not put the saffron threads in warm water beforehand.
