"Excellent! There were no leftovers. I didn't have smoked paprika so I just added a little of pepper to the paprika. When did the garlic, I added extra garlic along with more oil."

"I prepared the recipe and I ate it ALL! I did not have smoked paprika. I used regular Spanish paprika, 3 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. smoked hickory seasoning in place of the salt. I kept the garlic cloves the same-except I crushed the cloves! I admit that I didn't use parsley. This was a yummy dish and it WAS very simple to prepare! Thank you for sharing the recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein"

"Delicious recipe and so easy to make! The aroma of smoked paprika and garlic was mouth watering. This is a keeper. I mixed the ingredients in a zip lock bag...added dehydrated garlic at the same time as the paprika and olive oil. The sprinkling of minced fresh parsley made the finished dish very eye appealing."
