Smoked paprika is made from peppers that have been dried and smoked, thereby giving your food an irresistible aroma. It's great for adding a deeply exotic element to your dish.
It can be difficult to find smoked paprika in the spice aisle of a conventional grocery store. You may need to look for it at a specialty spice shop, gourmet foods store or ethnic grocery. When searching these places, keep in mind that the Spanish word for paprika is pimentón.
