Smoked paprika is made by smoking dried red bell peppers over a wood fire. It adds flame-kissed flavour to any dish without having to light up the grill.

If you can’t find smoked paprika, try chipotle powder, or use sweet paprika with a dash of cumin. If you’d rather not use wine in this recipe, substitute a scant 1⁄4 cup chicken or vegetable broth and 1 tsp sherry vinegar or white-wine vinegar.
