    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Do not limit the use of the Chermoula to just this dish; also use it with chicken or pork This can also be cooked on the barbeque. Harissa is a Moroccan spice paste and you can probably find it in the Asian supermarkets Cooking time does not include marinating time

      Fantastic chermoula! Used to marinate lamb kabobs which we grilled a medium hot grill. OMG delicious! Can't wait to try on some good venison this fall! Thanks for the keeper Pets'R'us!

      i am revising my review- this tasted even better the second day and was enjoyed by all. it looked very nice sliced with the filling and wasn't at all spicy despite the harissa.
