Notes

If you do not have saffron, you can also color the sauce with a little tomato paste, or even some turmeric. I think dark olives would also go very well with this dish. They give a nice Mediterranean touch.

If you don’t like pangasius, you can also use another kind of white fish of course. Pangasius is a typical fish of the South-East Asian region. Internationally it is known under different names: basa fish in North America and Australia. In the UK it is marketed as panga or cobbler, often with the addition “catfish”.
