CoCoCabana Posted March 14, 2018 Share Posted March 14, 2018 Tonight I wanted to recreate a childhood favourite from when I visited Germany as a Boy Scout ( sniggers accepted) . I think it was my first ever spicy food and the German family with whom I was staying were surprised I wasn't up all night. I recall the flavours of paprika , tomato and onions and 'heat' . So some relatively box standard Shashlik ( means skewered meat in many East European and Near East languages) were indirect grilled for an hour before a quick finishing sear. The back ones were rubbed with smoked paprika and salt , the front ones 'naked'. For the sauce I used half a Tsp regular Paprika powder , half a Tap smoked Paprika powder , turned into a rich tomato based purée and almost Caremalised sweet white onions. For the heat some chilli flakes and then just simmered so the ingredients got to know each other . Very happy with the outcome and the dredging up of fond memories at the ' Schnellimbiss' in Essen Borbeck . ill do this again and if I have more time will smoke the shashlik and the sauce to really jazz it up. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
