Chop onion, celery, carrot, garlic to fine mince. Sauté with olive oil in a deep frying pan until translucent - about 10 minutes.
Add shrimp (either whole or chopped if preferred). Stir in sherry and chili sauce. Add seasonings (salt, pepper, thyme, and red pepper flakes) to taste. Cover for approximately 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp are opaque.
Remove lid and add cream and a pinch of saffron. Simmer for another 4 to 5 minutes as cream thickens.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve hot over steamed rice or in a bowl with crusty French bread.
