Chimichurri typically comes from Latin America and is classically used in Argentinian cuisine…?!
Utterly right, as it is also there much loved! But if you ask our Spanish friends they say that the origins lie in the European space, namely in the Iberian Peninsula. Ultimately the Spaniards have been a people of seafarers who have 'exported' their customs and practices to the entire world. And so, the Argentinian cuisine is based on Spanish and Italian concepts. Mediterranean herbs and spices are a typical base for a classical Chimichurri. This Chimichurri has been enhanced with Majorcan smoked olive oil. The right amount of nip is given by fresh Habaneros. A bit of crunch comes from the toasted onions and sunflower seeds. After you have tried it once you will not want to miss out on this tasting experience. It is absolute madness to let the aromas dissipate slowly in your mouth! Just try tasting a tablespoon and enjoy the unbelievable aroma range. Very, very tasty! This is how a vacation tastes like! Chimichurri fits particularly good with all grill dishes (just pour on the grilled juicy beef a blob- it is great!), poultry, in bruschetta simply on toasted white bread...or simply, as we do it , eat it out of the jar :)
