It might be hard to find, but smoked paprika (as opposed to the more common sweet version) is a must for any Spanish tapas chef. It adds depth to a batch of patatas bravas, and it's a perfect match with shellfish. If you want to be really authentic, use octopus, but we have a feeling you'll have more takers if you make this recipe with shrimp. Sauté with olive oil, garlic, a healthy heaping of smoked paprika, and serve with crusty bread.
