Spanish paprika, or pimentón, is milder and sweeter than Hungarian varieties, sometimes owing its distinctive flavor to being dried via the smoke of oak timber.

In addition to use as a spice to season stews, soups, rice, eggs, sausage and other meats, Spanish paprika is sometimes mixed with a small amount of olive oil and served as a condiment.

powdered spanish paprika

In the La Vera region of Spain, paprika is produced by drying chili peppers over oak fires, which is why Spanish smoked paprika is sometimes referred to as pimentón de La Vera. Variances in flavor occur, however, depending on whether farmers seed the peppers and which varieties of chili peppers are harvested. Generally, there are three grades of Spanish paprika: dulce, which is mild and sweet; agridulce, which is slightly bitter with medium heat; and picante, which is pungent and hot.

In Middle Eastern cuisine, paprika is combined with cumin, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper to make a seasoning blend called baharat, an Arabic word that means “spice.” This seasoning might be served tableside, mixed with oil as a condiment or used to add flavor to soups, stews, lentils and couscous.
