Paprika

Paprika is a ground red spice derived from the flesh of a dried mild pepper. The intensity of both the color and flavor of paprika depend on the peppers used to make it. Most of the bright red paprika used today is the mild Spanish type, which is slightly sweet. This paprika, often used more for its color than flavor, gives French dressing its vibrant color.

  3. Pan-Fried Yukon Gold Potatoes with Paprika

    If you have smoked Spanish paprika (called pimenton), this is a great place to use it. Duck or goose fat is a delicious replacement for the olive oil. Use a pan large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer so they don't steam in their own moisture.

  3. How to Make Berbere Spice and What to Do with It (Partial List)

    Sat, 15 Oct 2016

    I love berbere spice, but it never occurred to me to make my own. I usually get it pre-mixed from the fancy grocery store, and it’s never disappointed, but I’ve wanted to feature it in a recipe, so I figured I’d also show how to make a batch from scratch. Well, sort of from scratch. To make this “for real,” you need to buy the whole spice seeds/pods, toast them, and grind it yourself. It does make a difference, but I rationalize not doing all that extra work because I usually toast the spices during the cooking process anyway. I’m not exactly sure what dried chili pepper(s) would be most authentic, but many people are saying that the New Mexico chili I used does a nice job. They have a nice, sweet, earthy flavor, and are sort of medium spicy. If you can’t find it, they say California or ancho chilies can work. Like I said in the video, please use the ingredients and amounts below as an outline, and adjust this to your tastes. Once you’ve perfected your formula, you’ll be the proud owner of one of the most delicious, and versitle spice mixes ever. I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients (everything can/should be adjusted to taste): 1/2 cup ground dried New Mexico chiles 1/4 cup paprika 1 generous tablespoon cayenne 1 teaspoon onion powder 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cardamom 1 teaspoon fenugreek 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves For the chicken: 1 boneless skinless chicken breast, seasoned with salt and berbere spice to taste 2 teaspoon melted butter 1 lime, juiced 2 teaspoon tomato paste 1/4 chicken broth, or as needed 1/3 cup coconut milk 1/2 tsp berbere spice salt to taste 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
