Happy Herbs and Spices Day! As flavour experts, we’re celebrating by exploring the vibrant and sweet pepper taste of smoked paprika.
his year, smoked flavours have taken spotlight in the kitchen. This added dimension means our favourite dishes are taking a turn towards new heights by boasting distinct and deep accents. Today, enjoy the many extensions of smoked paprika with these five recipes:
Along with smoked flavours, toast as a meal is a food trend we’ve fallen for. Adding a gourmet twist like sage, smoked paprika, garlic and wine marinated cremini mushrooms, takes toast above and beyond a breakfast staple.
The sweet pepper flavour of which paprika is built on is the ideal complementary spice to enhance fresh clams. Combining tomatoes and white wine as the broth base, this is a dish that you’ll be cooking up for your next backyard dinner party.
Hands-on meals where the entire family can participate are the ones we love best. Bring out the natural taste of sirloin with paprika, garlic and oregano. These fajitas not only bring a smoky flavour, but are Greek-inspired when topped with feta and olives!
Roasted vegetables are one of those side dishes that are easy to rely on. Whether you bake them in the oven or grill them in foil, roasting seasonal veggies enhances the dimensions of rosemary and smoked paprika, and their umami notes.
Did you know? Umami is one of the five basic tasts, along with sweet, sour, bitter and salty. Originating from Japan, umami translates to pleasant savoury taste.
Add the depth of smoked spices to everyday meals with this homemade salt. This all-purpose ingredient combines a few of our favourite flavours and adds texture and taste to meats, vegetables, potatoes and more.
