Chimichurri – Argentinian Herb Sauce or marinade typically made with finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, oregano, vinegar, and olive oil.
It accompanies grilled meats, chorizo, and empanadas. Chimichurri can be used, as well, for a marinade for meats or lightly brushed on shrimp before they go on the grill. The attached recipe makes 12 ounces; actually, more than you need. Store the Chimichurri in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. I like to pour the extra Chimichurri sauce into ice cube trays and freeze it into cubes. Once they are frozen, shake out from tray and store in freezer bags and use as needed.
