A couple of weeks ago I sang the virtues of a herb planter in my window sill. Let’s start looking closer at the herbs I dip into on a regular basis. First up, cilantro.
Here’s 5 Things I’ve Learned About Cilantro
- It’s called coriander in Asia. Hence the spice coriander is cilantro seeds. It’s also called Chinese parsley. Quite well traveled apparently.
- It’s grows quite well on our mostly shaded window sill. And it needs minimal water.
- It’s not bad in an omlette, OK in pasta with olive oil and garlic, and kinda confusing garnishing a sandwich.
- I’m looking forward to putting it in its natural habit of homemade salsa this summer when tomato season kicks in.
- Thus far, my hands down favorite way of using cilantro is as a garnish for fish tacos (above).
