Cilantro, also called Chinese parsley, is an annual herb that is ubiquitous in Asian cuisine. It has an intense and fragrant aroma that is herbal, complex, and citrusy. Cilantro brings a lot of flavor to dishes and is an herb without substitute.
Uses: The flavor of cilantro diminishes with heat so cook it minimally. Garnish with it raw or add it towards the end of the cooking process.
