ISO Smoked Paprika Info

I find it in many recipes and being used by master chefs. I can't find any at the local grocer, however.

How often do you use smoked paprika? How does it differ from the standard paprika I find at the store? What kinds of dishes do you use it on?

Mike you can order it here... It has somewhat of a smokey taste....I use it in some BBQ rubs, but not all.

You won't be disappointed. I also use it in some of my rubs - there are many recipes that use it though.

Great stuff! Use it anywhere you'd use regular paprika for an added flavor component.

Shrinkle some on home fries or roast potatoes.

Excellent on fish, or add a little into some melted butter.

Make a smoked paprika butter, and use it on corn!

You can often find it in your supermarket spice aisle but it's usually on the bottome shelving in a tin.

Penzey's is better by a zillion miles though.

Not a paprika expert.

I'm guessing the paprika you buy in the store is Hungarian paprika, somewhat sweet, good for deviled eggs and chicken.

I have never bought smoked paprika.

I use another type - paprika from Mexico - to flavor meats and stews.

There are many kinds of paprika. You can research them. What you want to do and how much you want to pay will determine your choices.

Smoked Paprika butter and corn? Oh my that sounds good.
I think I have some Tilapia which I could put a few pinches.
Going to the grocery store today or tomorrow, hopefully I can find some smoked paprika, right now all I have is McCormicks Paprika, and I use it on alot of things, Wings, Potato Chips, Fries, and in a spice mix for grilling meats.

And add a little lime juice and some kosher salt - you won't be sorry.
