Fun With Chimichurri

Chimichurri performs a superb job at being a condiment, marinade, or basting sauce for grilled meats, but this zesty sauce can also add some extra zip to many other foods as well.

Chimichurri Remoulade

Mix one part chimichurri(strain some if too liquidy) to three parts mayonnaise to create a delicious remoulade for fish, crab cakes, fried potatoes, sandwiches, or whatever you enjoy remoulade with.

Marinated Olives

Drain a can or jar of olives, dump into a non-reactive bowl, cover with chimichurri, and seal with plastic wrap. After they spend a night together, enjoy! Before serving, remove olives and reserve the chimichurri as a marinade for meats.

Chimichurri-Steamed Fish

Have a favorite recipe for aluminum foil-wrapped baked fish? Swap out all of the ingredients except for the fish, of course, and liberally douse the fillets or whole fish (including the cavity) with chimichurri, wrap, and cook.

I really need to post more chimichurri recipes that are better suited for the aforementioned examples but the first recipe here, should work just fine.

**New parsley-garlic recipe added.
