Parsleyed Potatoes with Saffron

***Here's another super simple side dish. I served this with "Steak with Shallot Sauce", which I will post tomorrow. It's always fun to use saffron, and I really like the taste it adds to dishes...very unique!***

1 1/2 lb small red potatoes (preferably 1 1/2 inches in diameter; 20 to 24), peeled
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Small pinch of saffron threads, crumbled
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

Steam potatoes in a steamer rack, covered, over boiling water until tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
Melt butter with saffron in a medium skillet over medium heat until it foams, then add potatoes, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, shaking skillet to coat potatoes well, until heated through, about 1 minute.
