It's no surprise this is my favorite recipe. What was a surprise was the addition of honey! I used local honey and as others mentioned the sweetness balances nicely with the spices. We served the chermoula on baguetts slices, pita crisps and as a scrambled egg topping. Loved this version! Prepared for the FYC tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a frying pan and dry-fry the cumin and coriander seeds with the cinnamon until aromatic. Grind with a pestle and mortar, or in a spice grinder. Then either put all the ingredients in a blender and whiz them up, or pummel the whole lot in the pestle and mortar, adding one ingredient at a time in the above order. Keeps well, refrigerated for a week.
