Dill (Lao Coriander, Phak See, Phak Chee)

Dill is a perennial or annual herb (depending on variety) that is known for its wispy, fernlike leaves and flavorful tang. It is native to the regions of southern Russia and the Mediterranean, and is now widely cultivated in Asia and West Africa. It is known as an aromatic herb whose seeds and leaves are used in both cooking and preserving foods.  Dill seeds are more strongly flavored then leaves and have been traditionally used in pickling and curing.  In many cuisines worldwide, its sweet and delicately flavored leaves are used in cooking and baking, often paired most often with fish.

Dill is used heavily in Lao cuisine, added as a spice to fish dishes and soups, and so we are seeing more fresh locally grown dill in the farmers markets!

Prepping and Eating Tips

– Always wash your dill well before using

– Simple chop or use its decorative thin branches whole

– A nice surprise when added to namasu

– Fold some fresh chopped dill into goat or creme cheese

– Dill makes a beautiful and aromatic addition to refreshing coolers and cocktails

Selecting and Storing Tips

Look for dark green, feathery bunches.  They are always a bit droopy, as the wilt process begins as soon as dill is cut. Dill is very fragile so will only keep a few days.  Store wrapped in damp towel or paper towel in the refrigerator or with stems placed in a container of water. Dill can also be frozen in airtight containers, either wrapped or chopped.
