Shrimp with saffron sauce and butter pasta

For quite some time I have a few pinches of saffron in my kitchen and could not find the right moment to use it. As we all know saffron is very interesting spice and I wanted to give it a special attention!
I saw this tutorial for a saffron creamy sauce and I decided that this would go perfectly with some garlic shrimp and buttery pasta.
It turned out to be a great combination of tastes and I am definitely preparing this recipe again.
This sauce is good for any kind of fish! I can’t imagine it in a combination of pork, but lamb I guess would be a good match.
