    LMillerRN's Note:

    Earthy saffron is lifted by peppery green onions in this quick side dish. Serve with the halibut to soak up the tasty juices. Halibut recipe is posted also Triple-Pepper Steamed Halibut.

      This was very good. I didn't add the salt. Went really well with grilled chicken. Nice simple lunch that was enjoyed by all. Next time, I might kick it up a notch and add garlic. Thanks. :)

      An easy side that complimented the lentils I served it with very well. Since the chicken broth provided enough sodium, I opted to leave off the salt.

      Fantastic! I love the smell saffron imparts-it fills the whole house up! Omitted the hot pepper sauce because I served this with #183742. Great yet simple recipe for a last minute meal! Thanks for sharing it! cg
