  • Parsley is very versatile it is used mainly to complement a dish sprinkling it over casseroles or anything else. You can even fry it!!! use your imagination it can also be used in place of cilantro.

  • I love it with eggs and fish. When making scrambles eggs I use pepper, parsley and paprika. Same with deviled eggs, egg salad, potato salad that has eggs and ham salad with eggs! On fish when you grill it, broil it or fry it it adds color and a subtle complement with taste.
