Chermoula 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. It 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.
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.
