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 as both a garnish and ingredient and is without substitute.
Uses: The flavor of cilantro diminishes with cooking so it should be added raw or towards the end of the cooking process. Add cilantro to your foods to add burst of aroma and complexity. Chop cilantro and add it to your dishes or sauces. Put cilantro into your soups and steamed foods for extra flavor.
Cilantro pairs exceptionally with lime and chili peppers.
