Zippy and fun! Chermoula Pork Chops!

Zippy and fun! Chermoula Pork Chops!
The perfect addition to your pork chops is Chermoula – an African relish or marinade used widely throughout Morocco, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria – it’s super zippy and fun!
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 pork chops
  • 7.5g cumin seeds
  • 2.5g coriander seeds
  • 2.5g black peppercorns
  • 1.25g chilli flakes
  • 5g garlic
  • 62 g diced onion
  • 2.5g fresh ginger
  • 10g paprika
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 40g parsley leaves
  • 50g coriander leaves
  • 150ml extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch of salt


  1. Toast the cumin & coriander seeds, then pound into a powder in a mortar and pestle.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz to a paste.
  3. Rub the marinade over the pork & allow to sit for 4 hours, or preferably, overnight.
  4. Pan fry or char grill until pork is just cooked. The Chermoula will blacken a little, that’s okay. The sweet/bitter caramelisation is what you’re looking for.
  5. Serve with yoghurt and fresh lemon.
