Piment d'Espelette Uses

I just purchased a small jar of Piment d'Espelette. So far, I have dusted shrimp prior to a quick saute and I know about piperade. Any other suggestions on use?

You're off to a good start. I generally use it as a finishing sprinkle on fish, chicken, meat, eggs, anything. It can be a great component for a dry rub. Some people add it to chocolate--hot chocolate, mousse, or ice cream.

I've added it into pureed pepper sauce for braising chicken thighs to very yummy effect.

Any savory Basque dish. E.g.poulet basqais. Good in paella too.
