Expert Tips

You can find Mexican oregano in most supermarkets these days. Believe it or not Mexican oregano is a totally different species from our typical Mediterranean oregano. Mediterranean oregano is part of the mint family and Mexican oregano is a kin to lemon verbena and has a slight citrus flavor. Either herb works well for this recipe.
