What's a good substitute for cilantro?
I have several friends with the soap gene (cilantro tastes like soap to them), my father's allergic (it gives him a headache) and because of a lifetime of avoiding the stuff, I find cilantro overwhelming in just about everything.
Typically, I substitute parsley, but sometimes it still feels like the dish is missing something. Are there other good substitutes for cilantro, either individual herbs or combinations?
Soap is far from an adequate description for how foul it tastes to me...but I won't suggest a substitution that would do it justice by my tastebuds. ;^)
Brit here - what is cilantro? We see it often on American cooking videos etc and most Brits just ignore it. It looks like Coriander. It might be available in certain supermarkets but I am certain 99% of British people have no idea what Cilantro is or how it used.
