Mexican oregano is misleadingly named – as it is, in fact, related to lemon verbena rather than Mediterranean oregano traditionally used in Greek and Italian cooking.
Mexican oregano is strong and herbaceous with liquorice-lemon notes. Add to stews, Mexican bean dishes or combine with chilli-infused oil for a flavoursome salad dressing.
Blend a little Mexican Oregano together with garlic and salt to make a paste. Use this as a rub for meat or fish, or add to oil and vinegar to make a dressing for salads and vegetables.
