Paprika, despite being a relatively “new” spice globally, is used in an astonishing variety of cuisines and dishes. It adds a rich red color, and thickens, soups, stews, and sauces. Whichever type of paprika you use, each adds a deep complementary flavor and aroma to any blend of savory flavors, such as used for spice rubs for meat, seasoning for roasted vegetables, or used in a marinade or dressing.
Smoked Spanish hot paprika, or pimentón picante, has a more earthy heat and is better for beef or pork, root vegetables, mushrooms, and other similar foods. It is also excellent in livelier spice blends such as your own cajun, barbecue, or hamburger seasoning. Here the mild smokiness really complements the paprika’s natural warm flavors, making it a wonderful ingredient on robust, earthy ingredients and in especially complicated or hot recipes – it is particularly excellent for chili, hot sauces, but also a sneaky addition in tomato sauces for stuffed vegetables, lasagna, or roasts.
