Our Spanish Smoked Hot Paprika is also known as Pimenton de la Vera Picante. It’s a popular ingredient in many Mediterranean recipes, and essential to Spanish cuisine. The peppers are dried slowly over an oak-burning fire for several weeks for a hot, smoky flavor. Use it to make truly wicked devilled eggs or try it on sauteed spinach or grilled baby octopus. It’s also a great addition to garlic-flavored mayonnaise, which can then be used as a spread for grilling chicken or fish.
