Spanish Paprika Seasoning
Spanish paprika, also called pimentón, is an essential ingredient in all types of Spanish recipes, and it is one of Chiquilín’s most popular products. The company is headquartered in the town of Novelda in Alicante, Spain, just north of Murcia. This area of Southeastern Spain is known for its red pepper production, so you can expect paprika seasoning from here to be top notch. The brand's paprika is produced in the traditional way, by drying and grinding ripe peppers. There are various types of paprika seasoning: dulce (sweet), agridulce (medium), and picante (hot). No matter their heat level, each type of Spanish paprika powder is defined by its striking red color and full, smoky taste. Supermarket Italy offers Chiquilín’s smoked paprika in a decorative 75-gram tin.
How To Use Chiquilin Paprika
Add a pinch of Chiquilin's smoked paprika powder to Spanish paella dishes, soups, chicken, potatoes, eggs, and more! Finish an appetizer, tapas platter, or even crostini with a light dusting of this red powder. Use a few pinches of this seasoning to give marinated meats, seafood, and burgers a pleasant smoky flavor. No grill required! Or toss in a dash of paprika to give sauces and stews a vibrant red color. To maintain its natural flavor and color, paprika is best cooked at low heat. If you're cooking hot and fast, it's best to wait until the end of a recipe to add in this smoked paprika.
