Culantro, also known as Sawtooth Herb, is the plant most similar to (but much more intense and stronger) than Cilantro in flavor and used by many South American countries as well as in Asia and the Caribbean even more frequently than Cilantro. Culantro (Eryngium Foetidum) is known as Recao in Puerto Rico, Long Coriander in Asia and Culantro in Mexico is known as Mexican Coriander.
Great in soups, beans, salsas and stews. We love it fresh and chopped in our Tuna salad. Leaves can also be clipped and used fresh or frozen to keep their fresh flavor. Culantro is rich in iron, carotene, riboflavin and calcium with a strong, pungent flavor.
