      I didn't have the saffron and I used a bit more pepper because we like things spicy. Very quick and delicious sauce I used on shrimp.

      The saffron gave this sauce a smooth and earthy finish. I loved the bit of heat that balanced the sweetness of the fennel and orange. My orange was very sweet, so no additional sugar was needed. And who needs the pasta??? I ate this sauce with a spoon! Use the best olive oil you have to drizzle on before serving.
