"Charmoula is a bold, fresh sauce made using cilantro, parsley, lemon, and garlic. Great on roasted veggies, fish, our grilled meats!"

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Line a rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Set aside.

To make the Chermoula:

Step 3

Toast the cumin and coriander in a dry skillet until fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool, then crush with the flat side of a knife or a heavy skillet. Add to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade.

Step 4

Add the remaining chermoula ingredients to the food processor and pulse until mixture is desired consistency, either very smooth or somewhat chunky.

Step 5

Arrange the fish on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread a spoonful of the chermoula onto each piece of fish and top with a lemon slice.

Step 6

Roast the fish for 8-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish, about 10 minutes for 1-inch thickness. You will know the fish is done when it is opaque and can be flaked with a fork. Serve immediately.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The whole family enjoyed this recipe. I used cod because fresh halibut wasn't available this week. The chermoula added color and flavor. It was very tasty. Made for CQ19.
