My new foodie addiction of 2021 - chimichurri! Why had I never tried this before??
You can serve it with anything, I love it with steak, but it would work with chicken, fish etc.
There are a million recipes for it, but my favourite is with cilantro, plus we always have it in the fridge and this is a great way to use it up.
You could use it as a marinade for meat too.
MAKES ABOUT 2 CUPS
1 shallot, finely chopped or any type of onion
1 Fresno chile or red jalapeño, finely chopped
3–4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced or finely chopped
½ cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
½ cup finely chopped cilantro
¼ cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 Tbsp. finely chopped oregano
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Combine shallot, chile, garlic, vinegar, and 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Let sit 10 minutes. Stir in cilantro, parsley, and oregano. Using a fork, whisk in oil. Transfer ½ cup chimichurri to a small bowl; season with salt and reserve as sauce.
