Chermoula

Chermoula created by JackieOhNo

Chermoula is a North African marinade, used especially for fish. It also makes a great dipping sauce or salad dressing. This recipe has plenty of tang and has been adapted from one by Julie Le Clerc. I use coriander (cilantro) rather than parsley and Lee Kum Kee's Chili Garlic Sauce rather than a small red chili. I like the end product so much that I can eat it with a spoon. Yummo!

    This was delicious and super easy, as well! I used the food processor, which made it even easier, and used half cilantro and half parsley. Also, I had to use a Serrano pepper, which was what I could find. Based on the varying sizes of bunches of herbs, I would not add the oil all at once next time, but slowly add it as you proceed to get it to the right consistency. I used this to marinate thin-sliced chicken breasts, which worked out really well! The garlic really came through, and flavored the chicken perfectly. I will enjoy using this on various proteins in the future. Made for Culinary Quest 2021.

    Used fresh parsley and a small pinch of dried chilli powder. Used to marinate lamb chops. This is the third time I have made this recipe and it’s always a delight to eat
