Chermoula is a delicately balanced spice mix that contains a mouth-watering combination of garlic, cumin, lemon peel, paprika and coriander. The name “Chermoula” comes from the Arabic word “chermel,” which means “to rub” or “to marinate”, indicating the traditional method for using this spice blend as a marinade or rub for fish and seafood.

Known as a fishes best friend, Chermoula is used throughout Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Algeria to rub or marinade freshly caught fish. Throughout Tunisia, it is used during Eid al-Fitr on salted cured fish to mark the end of Ramadan.

The exact origins of this Chermoula spice mix are not known, but it’s clear that the spice mix developed as a result of the blending of culinary traditions in the region with the influences of Berber, Arab, and Mediterranean cultures all contributing to its unique flavour profile.

We think the Chermoula spice blend is great to add to a fish pie or rubbed onto salmon fillets. Also works well with meat and roasted vegetables. You could even mix this with olive oil, lemon juice, or vinegar and create a tangy dressing or dipping sauce for salads, bread and roasted vegetables.

    Mixed this is with olive oil to a big tray of vegetables and roasted for nearly an hour – majority of the time we covered the veg with foil and removed towards to the end. Flavour was great and we had with mexican cous cous


    Have only used the Thai seasoning so far, found it to be excellent. Have no doubt that other purchases will not let me down. Will continue to purchase from seasoned pioneers.

    I’m delighted to have found this. I have been using Hello Fresh boxes and was worried about replicating the taste when the ingredients called for a particular spice or herb mix so I can now make the recipes with confidence. The spices are good value and the customer service was excellent; thank you!

    Lovely, fruity, mild but strong spice mix. We had it in our mixed veg rice and a pinch added real depth of flavour.

    I haven’t tried the spice mix yet but Seasoned Pioneers have offered excellent customer service and communication and a very speedy delivery.

    I mix it with honey and a glug of olive oil, spread it over aubergine and bell peppers, and then I roast them. It adds variety to my veggie meals!

    I’ve tried a few different blends and this one is my favourite by far. The packet goes a long way, as even a pinch carries a lot of flavour.

    This spice mix is delicious with warming and aromatic notes. This is the first time I have used this blend, I use it in Middle Eastern dishes and to spice up pasta recipes. I am on my third packet. The spice blends are superb and I have purchased a delectable and enticing variety of different spice blends. I can’t wait to explore with my taste buds mmmmmmm.

    Another good quality spice mix; warm, sultry and aromatic. I use it to spice up fried eggs, very tasty.
