Salmon with Chimichurri Sauce

salmon-with-chimchurri-sauceSalmon with Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri  (chi*mi*chur*ri) is a piquant sauce which is popular in Argentinean, Uruguayan and Mexican cuisine. It is a simple dressing made with fresh parsley, extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, fresh garlic, fresh scallions and crushed red chili used on grilled meat . I love chimichurri on grilled fish, like salmon as well and thought I share my recipe with you today. 


Chimichurri is a sauce that has some zest to it and it goes with just about any side dish. You can use rice, potatoes, salad or even just mop it up with a baguette. I was in the mood for noodles and used these colorful Fiocchi pasta.
