Coriander, also known as Cilantro or Chinese Parsley, is particularly aromatic. Coriander has a round branching stem topped with small, bright green, finely scalloped leaves. The entire plant may be consumed including the leaves, the stem, the root and even the seeds.


Culinary Uses

Coriander will add a distinct flavour to dishes and may be eaten raw or cooked.  Coriander leaves, stem and seeds are often used to flavour curries and Thai dishes, stews, salads and sauces – with the leaves used both during cooking and after as a garnish, just before serving.


Selecting the best produce

The freshest coriander will have the most pungent aroma.

Fresh, quality herbs, will appear as though they have just been picked with plump looking leaves.  Look for produce that has healthy stems with no signs of yellowing or wilting.


Storing

0 degrees celcius at 90-100% relative humidity. As coriander is a delicate herb it should be expertly handled during shipment and kept away from refrigeration fans. 


Harvesting & Packaging

South Australia’s warm and temperate climate ensures year round production of quality Australian coriander. Fresh Please Coriander is hand cut and tied into 200g bunches or packed into Fresh Please ‘travel friendly’ pre-packs.  Pre-packs are available in a range of sizes from 20g upwards dependent on your requirements.

This recipe makes the most of the best seasonal produce. The sharp and acidic grapefruit and the bitter greens counteract and balance the rich healthy fats from the tuna and sesame seeds.

Nutrition

Coriander is a good source of vitamin C. 

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants boost your immune system, and may protect against cancer, heart disease, cataracts and infection. It also helps the absorption of iron and zinc in other foods.
