    Cristina Barry's Note:

    Recipe courtesy of Susanna Goihman, Azafran Restaurant, Philadelphia. Love latin infused tapa like dishes. I have yet to make this recipe, so if you do, please share your thoughts. Arepitas are similar to corn fritters.

      Transfer the herb mixture to the bowl with the onion and stir to combine. Season the chimichurri with salt and pepper.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      Using your hand, knead the mixture until a firm but malleable dough is formed.

      Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, pour the oil for frying into a large pot to a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer inserted in the oil registers 365 degrees F.

      These were awesome, but are slightly challenging to fry. My houses was filled with smoke at one point because I did not use a thermometer with the oil, so I highly recommend doing so. After I finally got the right temp for the oil they turned out great, very filling! The chimichurri was perfect.
