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. Grilled Sausage-Stuffed Calamari – Squid Pro Quo

    Fri, 13 Jun 2014

    I usually go out of my way to simplify the recipes we post here, but for some things, like this Spanish-inspired, sausage-stuffed calamari recipe, there just are no acceptable shortcuts to take. However, your efforts will be rewarded with something that tastes every bit the effort it took to make…as long as they don’t explode in your face. If you overstuff these, like I do every single time, they can burst open, sometimes violently. As you’ll see, the final results will still look great, and you do get to sneak a few tastes of the stuffing as you grill. So, be careful not to fill these too much, and/or wear your sunglasses while grilling these beauties. As far as grilling time goes, you really should use a thermometer, and cook until you have an internal temp of 155 F. Especially since you’ll have squid of various sizes on the grill at the same time. If that’s not an option, look for when the juices and fat from the sausage starts bubbling out. I was so hungry when I finally finished this batch I forgot to serve these with lemon wedges, which adds a nice, bright note to the smoky, spicy meat. A few platters of these, some ice cold beer (provided by friends you just taught what quid pro quo means), and you’re basically summering in Spain. I hope you give these a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for 16 to 18 stuffed squid: 1 1/2 pounds cleaned calamari (tell the fish guy to give you mostly tubes) For the stuffing: 1 tbsp olive oil 1/2 cup diced onion 1/2 cup diced red pepper salt and pepper to taste 6 oz Italian or other spicy, garlicky sausage 1 large egg 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley 1/8 tsp smoked paprika 4 ounces chopped tentacles (grilled the rest separately and eat!) - serve with lemon wedges *Note: grill these over a medium-hot coals, or close your cover to keep the heat down
