Cilantro or coriander, depending on where you come from, is perhaps the world's most widely consumed herb. Cilantro is used in cuisines from Latin America to across Asia. I refer the seed of the plant, the spice, coriander and plant itself, cilantro. You can use the stem and the leaves.
In this Asian Fusion recipe, we combine the freshness of Japanese sushi style with a cilantro pesto and an avocado guac. The flavors come together with the help of the best EV olive oil and lime zest. The finishing sprinkling of crushed coriander and sea salt gives the dish an aromatic kick and texture.
