Smoked Paprika Beef Fillets-Saffron Aioliadmin
Smoked paprika is a ground spice made from dried red peppers where the peppers have been dried over wood fires to give it a smoked flavor. In this recipe, paprika gives the beef fillets a slightly smoky aroma. The Saffron Aioli is a delicious garlic-based sauce, which makes a great pairing for this beef recipe. Chef Wecker
