SAFFRON, the worlds most amazing spice!
Keeping on my Mediterranean theme this week, I made this beautiful Spanish Black Cod in a Saffron and Tomato Broth. You could really use any white fish if you wanted to because the star is that delicious yellow, fragrant broth!
Saffron is one of the most precious spices in the world! It was said to have first originated in Greece, but today it’s primarily grown in Iran, Greece, Morocco, and India. Did you know that it can take up to 1000 flowers to produce just one ounce of saffron? Crazy right…maybe that’s why its so expensive! 😮
Either way it is worth trying, especially since this dish was super easy, yet elegant helping you wow your family and friends. You can usually find Saffron in specialty grocery stores or you can always order it online.
My southern roots kicked in last minute and I decided to throw in some grilled okra since it’s in season and it paired perfectly. I also grilled some heirloom squash and served those on the side. My next thing to try with Saffron is definitely going to be an easier version of Paella or maybe Milanese Risotto. Check out the full recipe below...
