Lavender is one of my favorite flowers because of its aroma and beautiful color, and it is also one of my favorite cooking spices. Lavender is not only used to make colognes, sachets and flower arrangements. It is also used for cooking when harvested in a manner that makes it safe for human consumption.
Dried lavender is a staple condiment of French cuisine, giving white meats, vegetables and fish a very unique flavor. My grandmother used to love surprising her guests by using this special flower to season her roasted chicken. I consider lavender to be an exquisite and elegant condiment, which is why I like to add it to my special celebration dishes, like for Easter. So today I’d like to share a very easy recipe for a delicious lavender sea bass fillet. Let’s get cooking!
