Did you know that cilantro and coriander are two distinct herbs that come from the same plant? While coriander seeds are the fruit of the plant, the cilantro is the leaves. They have very different flavors and uses. Usually when a recipe calls for “coriander” it means the seeds, and “cilantro” it needs the leaves.
Cilantro has a lively and bright citrus flavor that is most well known in Mexican cuisine, but also often appears in Caribbean, Indian, and Asian cuisines. It can be found fresh, dried, or ground. This ground cilantro it is a grey/green finely ground spice that is easy to work with.
It has a sweet and fresh flavor that is often used to balance bold Mexican spices and blend hot chili peppers in spicy Mexican dishes. Use dried cilantro spice to flavor ceviche, guacamole, and salsa. Cilantro pairs well with avocado, chicken, fish, lentils, rice, salad, seafood, tomatoes, and peppers. Use it to explore your own fusion dishes; especially Tex-Mex, Asian-Latin American, or Thai-Mediterranean.
