Smoked paprika

HI! Can anyone tell me where to get smoked paprika in the Halifax-Dartmouth area?

  1. I was just in Pete's Frootique this morning and they carry spanish Hot smoked paprika and also Sweet smoked paprika. It is not located in the spice section. Ask a clerk in the grocery section and they will find it for you. Do you have a favourite way to use it? I bought 2 tins and I am not sure what to do with it.

      I use it in Paella, bbq rubs and jambalaya. It's seems more intense than regular paprika, it's got a smokey roasted flavor. Like the difference between a sauteed red bell and a roasted one, so I guess in place of reg paprika, wherever a little smokey taste would be welcome

        I use the sweet variation in a wonderful potatoes-in-tomato-sauce tapas dish called Patatas Brava - yum!

        btw - the Spanish name for it is pimentón - might help find more recipes online!

      2. Thankyou! I've never actually used it, but I keep coming across recipes that call for it. Sounds like i4details has some good ideas!

          I made breaded pork chops for dinner tonight. In the breadcrumbs I added abit of the smoked paprika. They were delicious! Just opening the tin and taking a whiff is a wonderful sensory experience! Do a search on Chowhounds for smoked paprika and you will find lots of ideas on how to use this product from Spain.

            If you are down Chester way, the Kiwi Cafe carries the smoked paprika,(sweet and hot) they use it in their delicious Hungarian Mushroom soup also.

        2. I order mine online from Penzeys. Its got a great smokey flavor and reasonably priced.
