CHERMOULA • The ancient Spice of Morocco & Tunisia

Continue Shopping or Checkout

Oh-so-flavorful Chermoula  has been an integral part of the Moroccan & Tunisian kitchen since Arabs introduced spices on their great sweep across North Africa in the 7th century. 

  What exactly is Chermoula? 

This complex, tangy-savory blend of 14 different ingredients (fragrant herbs, earthy spices, acidic citrus) represents historic North African trading routes crisscrossing Morocco, with flavors of citrus, saffron and cumin.  This blend gives a spicy, true North African flavor.


   Simple ideas with Chermoula

Commonly paired with extra virgin olive oil in a marinade for fish or chicken it’s just as delicious sprinkled on avocado toast. Having this spice mix on hand eliminates the need to keep a large pantry of spices. Combine two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with one tablespoon of chermoula spice blend and get cooking!  

Chermoula enlivens meat, poultry, and fish. With herbs, earthy spices, and lemon, it is a great marinade and terrific condiment.

Traditionally used to flavor fish, it is particularly suited to tuna, swordfish, salmon or monkfish, served with crushed black pepper, salt and fresh lemon. Use with fish, poultry, yoghurt.

You can use these blends in traditional ways by adding to marinades and dips, or try a modern take sprinkled over eggs, soup, salad, poultry, fish or avocado toast. Or simply mix into yogurt and slather on grilled meats.

Chermoula is often used as a marinade or an accompaniment for grilled seafood, but, in fact, it’s an endlessly versatile condiment. Serve it with roasted leg of lamb, stir it into couscous, slather it on roasted cauliflower or toss it with chickpeas and shredded carrots for a quick salad.

  1. Layer thinly sliced potatoes, tomatoes and seabass into a pan and add chermoula olive oil and bake.
