Pimenton is a type of pepper powder, popular in Spanish dishes, similar to paprika, and NOT to be confused with Hungarian paprika, whether sweet or hot.


P.S. Have made this dish and it IS fantastic!

When I looked for it there, no. Do you have an Indian spice store in your area? You will be able to find it there. I would say to sub paprika for it, but it's just not the same, and you may not want to make it again. Try to find the pimenton if you can. Penzey's is another place and if there is not one in your area, you'll have to mail order, but they are quick in delivery. The dish IS worth the wait!

Well darn it, thats what I was afraid of. I'm 2 1/2 hours from any place with speciality stores. I think I'll look up a place to order it online as you suggested. (do you know a good place?) Thanks much.

As mentioned in my post, Penzey's. And they deliver quick, so you will not have to wait THAT long before you can make this dish!!!

Our WalMart here carries it, but not in the regular spice aisle. It's sold in little bags in the Spanish/Mexican food aisle.

However, I don't know if all WalMarts have entire aisles devoted to Spanish/Mexican foods & brands, or if it's only ones like ours where there's a large Hispanic population.

Oh - & the New York Times recently had an entire article on "Pimenton", & it stated that if you couldn't find true "Pimenton" (which, by the way, is slightly smoked), you could substitute hot, sweet, or smoked Hungarian paprika.

And just one more note - that recipe you want to make for Chicken alla Diavola calls for HOT Pimenton, not sweet. It's the "heat" which makes it "Diavola".
