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. Shrimp Toast – Is Toast the New Wing?

    Sat, 9 Jan 2016

    While virtually unknown compared to most other popular fried party snacks, these shrimp toasts are easy to make, and every bit as delicious, and addictive, as those Buffalo wings, or jalapeño poppers. Well, all that’s about to change. Nobody goes to a friend’s house to watch the game, and expects to see a plate of these crispy-on-one-side, soft-and-savory-on-the-other-side treats, but after a few of you make these, and word spreads, I’m sure it will just be a matter of time. Speaking of spreads, since we apply the shrimp mixture raw, it’s not like you can dip a finger in to taste it. So, to check for seasoning, especially the salt, you may want to fry a small piece (like during meatball production), and adjust from there. I added a tiny pinch of salt, but thanks to the soy, anchovy, and fish sauce, you may not need any. These are significantly better served warm than cold, so maybe fry them in batches, and/or keep warm in an oven. And yes, if you don’t do shrimp, any other raw seafood will work. By the way, I have it on good authority that these are magnificent served with cold beer, and for that reason alone I hope you give these a try soon. Enjoy! Makes about 16 Shrimp Toasts: 1/2 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined 1/4 cup diced water chestnuts 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves 1/2 cup green onion, finely sliced 3 garlic cloves, crushed 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger 1 anchovy filet 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil 1 teaspoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or more to taste 1 egg white 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon paprika pinch cayenne pepper pinch of salt 4 large slices white bread sesame seeds, optional vegetable oil for frying
