Ideas for Paprika condiment?

Yes, great with meat. But I want to try your goat cheese log suggestion with za'atar and the paprika this time. Have a feeling it'll work :)

I'm thinking of using za'atar(sp?) - a combination of sesame, thyme and sumac that a friend got me from Lebanon. I think the smoky earthy taste will work great as balance.

So i tried my divine condiment over ostrich fillet with chickpeas in EVOO, rosemary and garlic. Scrumptious!
Baked potato with gorgonzola - yummy!
but the best was probably with garlic, chopped parsley and a 'spreadable' Italian sausage, quickly tossed over the fire, and stirred in with cooked spaghetti (al dente, of course). I'm doing seconds tomorrow!

I've seen that it works with stronger-tasting meats, rather than chicken or fish. However, it works well with jacket potato with gorgonzola :)
Mixing with oil is also a good idea!
Thanks!

In fact, those roasted veggies are REALLY good on their own! :) Thanks!

Hmm, I love beans and lentils. Will try this in some way. Sure to be good, if not great.
But if you would like to send some beans recipes from your grandmother my way, they would be much appreciated ;)
Thanks!

It works on only a very few cheeses, i saw. Strangely, it was good with gorgonzola.

Thanks, i was also wondering about freezing, but I'm just not sure, considering it's a 'homemade' one. Packed into and sold in a simple plastic tub with an expiry date :) I really don't know if it would stand repackaging/freezing and I'm not keen on wasting it :(
I already made a sandwich, something like you suggested. But I used tofu, as I had some lying around that anyway didn't taste like much on its own. I grilled it first and then made the sanwich - my condiment sure gave the tofu a whole new lease of life ;)

Hill, that sounds like a bomb! I have to try it! It actually sounds like something I could get addicted to :) Goat cheese is on my favourites list already.

Haha, got me laughing when I saw your username. I tell you, after this jar's over, I could be ell become paprikagal :)
Your suggestion sounds interesting - although I'm wondering if a paste as zesty as this wouldn't overpower the delicate octopus...?

Kate, i actually tried it like you said, sort of. I used pulled pork instead of chicken. And no cream. Just diluted with a little Sicilian EVOO. Was yummy!!! :)

Sounds good :) Meat, fried onions, paprika = always a sure winner in my book. Thanks!

Hi,

I have this container-ful of the mostb divine parika paste that I bought at a butchery-restaurant in Budapest.
Of course, I couldn't resist cracking it open for a taste. And two. So now I have an open container that I must use quite quickly. I have eaten it with marinated and grilled beef, can do a few more meats.

It's a very thick, very flavourful condiment of great Hungarian paprika and I would liek to make the best possible use of it. (Cooking WITH it would be a sinful waste)
Any suggestions how I could best use it?

Thanks! ;)
