How much fresh coriander do you use instead of dried?

Usually about three times as much, but if a recipe calls for fresh, do your best to use fresh. Dried rosemary is one of those herbs that does not do very well dried. Fresh vs dried makes a huge difference. Also, depending on the recipe, if you're using dried rosemary, don't leave it in the food. Let it sit to soak the flavor in and then strain/take it out.
I use nearly the same ratio to substitute for most herbs. 3 to 1. You want one third the amount of dried as the amount of fresh that is called for. That would be approximately 1 teaspoon of dried to one tablespoon of fresh, or 1/3 cup of dried for your 1 cup of fresh. However, it also depends on how fresh your dried herbs are.
