What is paprika?
Paprika is a deep orange-red ground spice made from dried fruits of the larger and sweeter varieties of Capsicum annum called bell pepper or sweet peppers. It is commonly used as a garnish on soups, stews or appetizers, but its flavor is truly released when its is heated through. Paprika is also named as the fourth most consumed spiced in the world
Is paprika spicy?
There’s not just one variety of paprika; thus its flavor could vary depending on where it’s from and the type of peppers used. Thus the flavors could range from sweet to mild to red hot.
Among of its popular variety are the plain paprika, Spanish paprika and Hungarian paprika. If you’re unsure on what suits you, you can start with the one that only says “paprika” on the label as it is neither sweet nor hot and is perfect as a garnish for eggs and the likes. Hungarian paprika on the other hand have some degree of rich, sweet red pepper flavor. Those you see usually in the grocery store marketed as the Hungarian sweet paprika is sweet and slightly pungent.
For this recipe I used a smoked paprika which is a type of Spanish paprika for a deep, smoky and woodsy, earthy touch of flavor
