NausetGirl December 12, 2014 Share December 12, 2014 I rarely eat salmon but when I do, it needs to be cooked through (and as fresh & mild as I can find). However, I've tried tuna and if it's grilled in an Asian restaurant (with those wonderful soy based dips), it's really good. I was shocked that I liked it. The "rare" section in the center has the same texture as rare steak--smooth and flavorful (not wet and slimey). But I'm careful where I order tuna (it's a rare occasion too). Now, cilantro is a puzzle. Years ago I was eating one of those Lean Cuisines and it must have had cilantro in it. I wondered why the food tasted like soap. So I avoided cilantro like the plague for years. I heard there was a certain percentage of people who taste soap when eating cilantro. Then, when we started dining at Thai restaurants (or ordering pho at Vietnamese), I discovered that fresh cilantro tossed into foods (w/o getting cooked) can be quite delicious. I don't use it a lot...just for certain dishes and for salsas. I can relate. Cilantro tastes like soap for me too. At first, I actually thought some liquid soap had somehow been dumped or drizzled on whatever it was I was eating - a salad or sandwich I think. Yuck. So distasteful I never tried it again.
