Green chermoula

Green Chermoula Recipe

Chermoula, a North African sauce traditionally paired with grilled seafood, has many variations. This one is a lighter, green version as opposed to the red variety that often contains a lot of chili peppers and paprika. It’s garlicky, lemony, and herbaceous notes make it perfect as a marinade, in dressings, or alone as a simple condiment. Try it on vegetables and tofu! I use it on savory grilled portobello mushrooms at my Moroccan-themed pop-up dinners. It’s also an extremely simple recipe – just grab your herbs and your food processor!
