General: Culantro is an herb that has a strong, aromatic scent that fills the air when you brush up against it and long serrated leaves.
Culinary Uses: Unlike cilantro, culantro can be added during cooking rather than afterward. You will find culantro specified in many recipes for dishes from the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Asia. Use in almost any dish that you would otherwise finish with cilantro, though using less culantro than cilantro is recommended when substituting.
