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. Nashville Hot Chicken – Yes Cayenne

    Sat, 16 Jul 2016

    It’s not often I reduce the amount of cayenne in a recipe, but that’s the case with this striking, and intensely spiced Nashville hot chicken. If you’ve never had it, we’re talking about an ultra-crispy fried chicken, doused with a cayenne-infused glaze, and by “glaze” I mean melted butter and lard. I t sounds crazy, but it 's basically like being able to put lots of hot sauce on fried chic ken, withou t it getting soggy . For the reco rd, I’ve never been to Nashville, so I can’t tell you how authentic this is, but it works for me, and is fairly easy to pull off.  By the way, do yourself a favor, and toss the chicken with a tablespoon of kosher salt the night before you fry, and you’ll get a nicely seasoned, moister bird. You can cut up a whole chicken, or just buy a package of leg sections, which work great in this recipe. If you want to see how to cut up a chicken, check out this old buttermilk fried chicken video . I cut the breasts in half in that one, but the technique is the same. I really hope you give this amazing fried chicken recipe a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients f or Nashville Hot Chicken : 1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces, tossed with 1 tablespoon kosher salt, and refrigerated overni ght. For the marinade: 1 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup pickle brine 2 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce 1 large egg For the flour: 2 cups AP flour 2 teaspoons fine table salt or 4 teaspoon kosher salt For the sauce: 1/4 cup lard 1/4 cup butter 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper - Heat oil to 350 F. and maintain temp of 325 F. during frying.
