Organic Chimichurri Sauce with Seaweed
This new interpretation of the traditional Argentinian chimichurri sauce combines the unique taste of seaweed with fine spices and herbs to make an excellent side dish for grilled fish, meat or vegetables. The sauce also goes wonderfully with potatoes, salads or as a spread.
Our chimichurri sauce tastes spicy and fresh like herbs mixed with vinegar and an extra virgin olive oil. The chimichurri sauce gets its typical green colour from the chopped herbs that form its base – first and foremost parsley and oregano.
