Even today I am going to buy aircraft. Products TBA eat! Bravo!

:) Well, I'm glad you liked the recipe. Frozen shrimp will find in larger markets, you can buy coconut straight saffron is expensive and rarely finds way it is easy to detect.

As saffron is a strong spice, should be used vminimal our quantities. Overdose doing dishes bitter. Synthetic is cheap and is sold in small packets orginal from 4 000 to 6 000 euros in one packet is 0. 25 g Caetano used 6 times. This recipe seems to me much. Turmeric is similar to saffron Toi is used in large quantities as 1 / 2ch.l. coloring of rice dishes.

Well, is not how many will be much .. I know that turmeric it, but just in this recipe - not. I question if I can use and I-carotene, but no. The original recipe is one that I have suggested in source and is the original recipe says 1 / 2h. l saffron. Maybe you are worth a lot, but it comes in the marinade, which in turn bake (spices I mean)

became a delicious salad. Unfortunately I was not able to digest the spices well, but next time will try more.

Gerganche, gorgeous photos! Rosset, congratulations for the recipe. Flowers, artificial saffron - tartrazin, E 102 - is very harmful. However, the aroma and taste are important, not color, so there is no sense of color, if not smell of saffron :)
