Intensely red and smoky - this paprika is smoked over oak wood and dried at the same time, giving it its unmistakable taste. As a perfect accompaniment to potato dishes, such as fried potatoes, baked potatoes or just as a finisher on vegetables, smoked paprika brings the extra touch of smoky and warming flavour. This noble spice also goes well with meat and tofu and packs a load of flavor with it, because smoke aroma = umami 2.0.
