Chermoula is a marinade and sauce popular throughout northern Africa. It is traditionally composed of fresh green herbs that are pounded into a paste along with preserved lemons, olive oil, garlic, salt, and a wide variety of dried spices. The flavor is similar to a strong, herb-forward pesto, or chimichurri sauce, seasoned with African spices and heightened with the bright, acidic notes of preserved lemon. Traditional chermoula is often used as a marinade for fish and meat before grilling or roasting, but it is also frequently served as a condiment. This seasoning is a shelf-stable version of classic Chermoula, combining herbs, spices, and other seasonings, including lemon peel and a touch of ground chiles. It’s ready to use as a dry rub, or it can be made into a loose paste with olive oil, white wine vinegar, or even just water, creating a refreshing alternative to pesto or chimichurri.
