I think you could definitely substitute parsley in this recipe. Some people love cilantro, but for others it can be a little too strong. Some people even describe it as a soapy taste. I happen to love the stuff, and I grow it in my garden every year. I like that this recipe has hot sauce and cumin in it for a different flavor than the American classic.

I detest cilantro! So did Julia Child! How about subbing flat leaf parsley? And I like MsBarneybutt's suggestions re the cayenne pepper dusting.

Nix the "hot sauce." Why not add some hot salsa, just a tad to the egg yolks before mixing the rest of the stuff together? Or even add a bit of tobasco to it all. I must admit to loving bilious56's addition of some cayenne pepper though I think it should be added to it all, not just as a "light dusting." Ya think? You DO know what they say, I assume, that people that eat "hotter" food tend to live longer, just as those that drink red AND white wine live longer, no? - cllM

A very light dusting with cayenne pepper sounds good.
