Smoked paprika

I bought some smoked Spanish paprika. What would you recommend using it with?

Do not put it on ice cream, donuts or any other sweet. Not sure it would be good in tuna sald, but I could be wrong.

Whatever dish to which you'd like to impart a smoky flavor; E.G., certain fish dishes. I use a little in shrimp ajillo.

What she said,

...put it on anything else.

Seriously, it adds a nice hint of smokiness to many dishes. I sprinkle it on when I'm making home fries, roasted potatoes. Add it to meats, sautés, stir fries, anywhere you want a little smoke. Use it in a dry rub in place of regular paprika or in more traditional dishes like Hungarian goulash.

It is one of my favorite spices. You can use it most places that you would want a hit of smoke. It is my (not so) secret ingredient in my hamburgers. It works well with heavy beef flavors like beef stew and pot roast and things like that.

I put a dash of it in my stuffed cabbage rolls and goulash. Any tomato based soup can be improved by a little of it. There are so many people of my parents' generation who think paprika is only a decoration. It's great in some Portuguese bean soup.

Good in meatballs and meatloaves. A bit on top of devilled eggs would be good.

This is a great thing to use rather than liquid smoke.
