Smoked Spanish paprika, also known as pimentón or “Pimenton de la Vera, Picante”, has a slow warming heat that will give earthy deep smoky flavors to dishes without the overwhelming burning heat of standard chili peppers.
Spanish paprikas vary in intensity from mild and sweet to hot and spicy. This smoked Spanish paprika, picante, is the hottest of the Spanish paprikas, and is idea for chefs looking for a good bit of zing in their dishes. Spanish paprikas are smoked over a wood burning fire to infuse the ground peppers with a deep woodsy smoked flavor that adds complexity and layers to an already intricate spice.
Hot smoked paprika is delicious in spinach, chickpea, potato, bean, and dishes in which the heat can disburse and add tons of flavor while being calmed by the soft mildness of the other ingredients. For bolder flavors try this picante pimentón in soups, chorizo, chili, and on grilled meats. Make a simple sandwich spread similar to chipotle-mayo by mixing hot Spanish paprika with mayonnaise and garlic powder.
Like all paprikas, this smoked paprika should be kept in an airtight container away from heat and light to preserve freshness. Use within three to six months for best flavors.
