Chermoula is a North African condiment made with plenty of fresh herbs, spices and preserved lemons. Villa Jerada's version is less herb-forward than traditional versions but just as complex, with a base of savory-sweet sun-dried tomatoes. Parsley and cilantro brighten up the sauce, which has a spreadable texture like tomato paste and is rounded out with warm spices and salty, tangy preserved lemons.
Use Chermoula as a spread for burgers, sandwiches or crostini, or mix into a creamy base such as Greek yogurt, sour cream or mayonnaise for a dip. Smear on grilled meat or fish, thin it out with stock to make braising liquid, or make a vinaigrette with Villa Jerada Chermoula, extra-virgin olive oil and either lemon juice or your vinegar of choice.
