Substitute sweet Spanish paprika (Pimenton) for the paprika in this recipe. Prepare as directed. Pimenton is a unique spice. It is made with spicy red peppers that have been harvested and smoke dried with oakwood. Oakwood gives the pimenton the smoky taste that is typical of this spice. It comes in 3 varieties: sweet and mild (dulce); bittersweet medium hot (agridulce) and hot (picante) and normally keeps for up to 2 years. It is a distant cousin of Hungarian paprika though there really is no substitute for use in authentic Spanish cooking. The level of spiciness is up to you!
