Ric, you and I might agree with that. But I understand there are a fair number of men for whom cilantro is intolerably bitter. For them the recipe without cilantro would be a good thing.

My wife is proud to be a 'supertaster' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SupertasterThese mutants ;-) have extra taste receptors and can detect more molecules than the old deprecated style of human like us. For example brussel sprouts that are fine to me are intolerably bitter to her.
