What Is Smoked Paprika?

Smoked Paprika originates from Spain and is made by slowly smoking Pimenton peppers, traditionally using oak. The flavor is sweet yet smoky, with some spice and woodsy hints to its overall profile. It is often used in paella and chorizo.

How Smoked Paprika Can Be Used

Smoked Paprika can be used in many types of recipes and cuisines and the nostalgia for a smoky dish is unmatched, adding layers of sensory experiences to your favorites dishes. The smoky depth of the flavor adds to marinades, rubs and dressings.

The ruby red color left on marinades and rubs is also appealing, soaking into the product and when cooked, offers a beautiful, ruby red hue. One only needs to look at a finely made chorizo to appreciate the artisan beauty smoked paprika brings to the table.

Lastly, it is the aroma that sets this paprika apart. A huge part of how we taste has to do with our smell. The sensory experience on the nose is slightly sweet, with smoldering wood and charcoal. This sense of smell is a layer most people search for when grabbing this from the pantry.
