We really liked this recipe (although my arm aches from all the pounding!), but the large quantity of smoked paprika gave it a slightly odd, almost metallic flavour. It was excellent when served as part of a tapas selection. We found that the potato-in-sauce combination went particularly well with a soft goat's cheese, for example. And it was fabulous when eaten in conjunction with Recipe #10349. Next time, I might reduce the amount of smoked paprika - however, the wonderful combination with sweet onions makes me wonder whether I should have used a sweet sherry instead of a fino, and I think this might be worth a try instead of cutting back on the paprika. The recipe didn't state what sort was needed, and having tried it, I think sweet or cream sherry is definitely the way to go. Thanks for a good recipe.
