Delicious Salmon Patties with Saffron Cream Sauce

Spicy salmon patties in creamy sauceIt's time to make a fish preparation with a creamy sauce. Salmon patties can be made in different ways and this one is different from what I've tried earlier. The saffron cream sauce enhances the flavor of the patties by many folds. I've kept the flavor quite mild which can be moderated as per your taste. You can either bake or shallow fry these patties. Instead of salmon, you can also use any other white meat. You cannot keep it in refrigerated form so make sure you cook it fresh and in limited quantity. If you have limited time, instead of going for the patties, use plain fish fillets and season them with your favorite ingredients. So, grab your frying pan and get ready to make this exotic salmon patty preparation.
