Recaito

Submitted by: JVANAM

Introduction

Recao is culantro in Puerto Rican, so this condiment is nicknamed recaito, or "little culantro."

I use recaito for dishes when I don't want the tomato color or extra liquid that comes with sofrito.

Culantro is the defining flavor. Recaito, like sofrito, can get you out of any kitchen emergency.
