With a uniquely smoky aroma, this Spanish hot smoked paprika (pimentón) also boasts a tangy, piquant kick perfect for adding a subtly spicy flavour to paella, stews, sausages, roasted or grilled meat and vegetables. It’s the one we use in our own paella. We love it.
El Angel paprika or pimentón has been carefully made in the Extremadura region of Spain by the same family since 1880. The peppers are smoked by the growers before being sent to the factory where they are ground in ancient stone mills. This coarse ground pimentón is smoky with a pleasant warmth. With a deep red colour it is the not-so-secret ingredient in Spanish charcuterie, such as chorizo sausages and lomo iberico.
