Chermoula is a marinade frequently used in Moroccan, Tunisian, and Algerian cooking. Typically, it is used to flavour fish, but this sauce goes with everything! I served mine with Sweet Potato pancakes (find the recipe in my profile!) Perfect as a dip with crudite or slap it on a sandwich. The flavours would be delicious with falafels too.
