It takes more than a sprinkle of spice to make paprika potatoes. We put the pop back into this promising side.
Why This Recipe Works
Adding paprika to the water that we used to boil our Paprika Potatoes bumped up the flavor, but we needed a whole handful to actually taste the spice. By cooking the potatoes in a covered skillet, we could use far less liquid (and less spice) to achieve the same effect. Since we were cooking the potatoes in a skillet, we turned to a tried-and-true flavor enhancing technique: toasting the paprika in the skillet with some oil. This process, called blooming, helps draw out more of the spice’s natural flavor.
