Moroccan Fish Marinade (Chermoula)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

This is an easy marinade to throw together. You can marinate any fish you'd like with this marinade, but I prefer whitefish. You only need to marinate your fish for a short amount of time - an hour or two is plenty.

Very good flavor! I used it on red snapper and it was enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  1. In food processor or blender combine cilantro, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, crushed red pepper, olive oil, salt, and cayenne to a fine paste. Adjust the consistency by adding more olive oil; the marinade should be fairly thick.
