Coriander is used extensively in Latin-American and Mexican cooking. Try adding a teaspoon next time you make posole, enchiladas, or even just a pot of beans. You'll also find coriander in a lot of Indian cooking, where it's used as one of the spices in many curry dishes. It makes a great component in spice rubs for fish and chicken, and adds a nice bright flavor when making homemade pickles.
You can buy coriander as whole seeds or ground into a powder. The seeds are tiny, light, and round, and they make a dusky brown powder. If you buy seeds, try toasting them lightly before grinding them to bring out the oil aromas and flavors.
