Coriander seed is something I recently came across, not in name but in use. I was pleasantly surprised when I used it in the red snapper escoviche I prepared for Easter. Though it’s originally from Asia and parts of Africa, it has become widely popular in all of Latin America. Coriander seeds are used as a spice, while its leaves, known as cilantro (love, love!) are used as herbs. As a spice, coriander is best used when its aroma is opened up by using a mortar & pestle. Because of its citrusy aroma, it goes well with fishes, and other meat, poultry foods. Use the herbs in your soups and stews. Enjoy!
Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
