North African Chermoula is a popular condiment typically served with fish and vegetables. Characterized by sweet and spicy chiles, garlic, citrus and bold spices like cumin, coriander and turmeric Chermoula dramatically changes dishes.

Chermoula (pronounced “cher-MOO-lah”) is a marinade and sauce popular throughout northern Africa especially Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Our Chermoula Seasoning recreates the sauce’s complex flavors in a convenient dry form.

Chermoula (pronounced “cher-MOO-lah”) is a marinade and sauce popular throughout northern Africa, especially in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. It is traditionally composed of fresh green herbs (often cilantro) that are pounded into a paste along with preserved lemons, olive oil, garlic, salt and a wide variety of dried spices. The exact combination and proportions of ingredients vary by region, but in general the flavor calls to mind 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 for cooked foods.

We’ve recreated the flavor profile of authentic chermoula in a convenient dry form. Our Chermoula Seasoning is a complete combination of 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.
