Grocery List: Smoked Spanish Paprika (or Pimenton)


Pimenton, a staple in Spain, is a spice made out of smoked, ground pimiento peppers. I only recently discovered the wonders of this pungent, bright red-orange powder, but I've definitely made up for lost time since. It's one of the grounding flavors in the chicken recipe I published yesterday, and I've also used it on deviled eggs, a seafood paella, sprinkled in tomato soup, and over fried potatoes. I can testify that it lends a really delicious, smoky warmth to everything it touches. Try it out and pick up a tin for yourself at Whole Foods (where I bought the stuff in the pic above) or HERE. xo
