llechef, that catfish looks amazing!
Bill, thank you so much for the recipe! Even my mother liked it!
 
Tonight I baked some fake crab, fake lobster, spinach, and Dreamfield's penne in a light cream-garlic sauce, served with a bag salad (ranch dressing) and some mixed fruit tossed with blackberry-balsamic vinegar and Splenda.

    Tonights dinner was fresh Salmon steaks served with white rice topped with baby green onions and cilantro!

          I'm not Mar, but I'll answer. Why cilantro? It ruins so many perfectly good things. Salmon sounds good, though!

            Cilantro is one of those spices you either like or dont like!  We often use it as it compliments so many different foods.  It tastes wonderful on white rice and especially good on Mexican food! 
            Mar hates the stuff and refuses to eat it but its AWESOME on Mexican food and especially when served in tacos and burritos!
            We grow it in our garden so its never in short supply.
             Forgot to also mention.........cilantro is a must for making salsa and its also good in scrambled eggs and salads! 
            As mentioned above......  its either a spice you like or one you dislike!

              I hate it almost as much as Mar. Tastes like lemon Pledge paste to me.

                I will speak to the taste of cilantro. I hate it. It takes over the taste of food, as most people don't know how to use it correctly.Instead of incorporating it, they sprinkle. Wrong! I only enjoyed the taste once, in a very well made fresh salsa, in which it was just a background taste. On the same page, Mar and Felix!

                  I never thought it tasted like soap.  It just tastes disgusting when fresh.  I can use it sparingly in salsas and soups.  In salsas it gets pickled and when cooked it mellows.
                   
                  I had something the other day that didn't have cilantro in it, but it must have been cooked in the same pan as some or near it.  Could not eat it. 
                   
                  It's overpowering and that tiny little piece remains in your mouth if you're lucky enough to get some on your bite of food.....  and it somehow gets between your teeth to make it's presence known sometime later for that last taste of the meal.

                    Y'all are gonna think I'm a freak but I really like cilantro.  It has it's place in Mexican, Cuban and South American cuisines.  I wouldn't want it on everything, but then I wouldn't want basil, rosemary, oregano or any other herb on everything.

                      I don't think you're crazy, although it's funny for me how often people who like it try to convince those of us who don't we should "just try it" again, because "you'll change your mind". Not gonna happen, any more than I'm gonna "grow out of" my food allergies.

                                Yes....  you are correct as the subject was re: Cilantro! 
                                Yes.......  more is not always better when it comes to Cilantro but that holds true with many other spices as well!

                                      I could dry it first, but I'd have to do it outdoors.

                                          Tonight I make a casserole with chopped chicken, spinach, and artichoke hearts in a mayonnaise dressing, with bag salad (Italian dressing) and sliced beets. My mother actually told me it was good!

                                            You could always make rat ragout à la cilantro.  Yum!

                                              We celebrated our 19th aniversary this week, but couldn't find time to share a nice dinner until today (Saturday).
                                                So tonight it was a Rack of Lamb for each of us and a nice fresh Spinach Salad with mixed berries and a sweet poppyseed dressing.

                                                        Dinner tonight was hamburger/noodle casserole topped with about a pound of cheese and had nice fresh mushrooms, diced tomatoes and garlic inside!  Served with Garlic toast.

                                                          Mayor - that's a gorgeous salad!
                                                          lleechef - that burger looks awesome, too.
                                                           
                                                          I went to a crab feed last night--first one in years, and it was big fun.
