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 sweet paprika, or pimentón dulce, has a brighter sweeter flavor and is well-suited to lighter dishes such as spring vegetables, poultry and seafood, toasty grains, and cream sauces. It complements the green leaf spices very well and is excellent in sauces and stews. The smoke is light but present, giving this paprika an extra richness and deeper color that is a wonderful upgrade to ‘regular’ paprika in sauces, soups, marinades, dressings, and spice rubs for meats, seafood, or vegetables. A very versatile spice excellent in spring and summer cooking.
