Spanish Smoked Paprika
It is a spice that has been smoked. It's made from air dried fruits of the chilli pepper that have been dried and smoked over an oak fire, then ground into a fine powder. Spanish paprika is available in three versions — mild, moderately spicy and very spicy. Paprika is used as an ingredient in a broad variety of dishes throughout the world. It is principally used to season and colour rice’s, stews and soups, such as goulash and in the preparation of sausages, mixed with meats and other spices. It is frequently sprinkled raw on foods as a garnish, but the flavour is more effectively pronounced by heating it in oil.
