It enhances the taste of goulash and many Eastern European dishes, particularly meat sauces. It is also eaten with fresh cheese, cream, fish, tomato, onions and avocado, as well as being part of many spice mixes.
The paprika plant is a perennial shrub native to South America. The biggest European producers are Hungary and Spain. It is obtained by grinding the seeds and the pulp of different varieties of Capsicum annuum: depending on the colour and degree of spiciness, different types of paprika can be obtained.
