Author Notes

Chimichurri is my “go to” sauce for steak and is equally good with fish, especially meaty fish like sturgeon. To cook with it, apply it liberally before the ingredient is finished cooking and sear it on. Serve with more on the side. Also delish with potatoes, cheese, black beans, chickpeas, tomatoes and cucumbers. The recipe makes a lot because I love it. It's fine to halve it.

I like reproducible results and have included the gram measurements to make it so. When measuring herbs, cup measurements are extremely subjective.
