Argentine Marinade

READY IN: 5mins
Top Review by argentina cooks

i live in argentina, this is pretty good, however, we do not use saffron or lemon. oil and vinegar. we also use diced red and green bell peppers. i add jalepenos for a little kick. and dried crushed red pepper. and chimmi churri is used on almost everything from pizzzas to frenchfries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. An Argentine asado or barbecue is not authentic without this delicious marinade called chimichuri.
  2. it is similar to a multi spiced vinaigrette and is given an earthier tone with the addition of saffron.
  3. I serve this with poultry or shellfish and brush it on top of garlic bread before toasting.
  4. Powder threads and steep in lemon juice for 20 minutes.
  5. Combine all ingredients with whisk and store in covered jar.
