What is chimichurri some say is a distortion of the words pass me the curry and Argentinean gauchos(cowboys) could not understand it so hence chimichurri it is usually to flavour meat dishes but sometimes bbq cheeses, chickens and not that often seafood
It is a very garlicky sauce the basic version is identical to what Italians call it gremolata and varies to what Morrocans call charmoula sauce (if coriander is finely chopped and a little cumin powder) if or that is fresh chopped parsley, garlic, olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
Argentine chimichurri has too many variations and can be readily found by googling.
here are some of the few I have collected of course there are still many forms of it some use lemon other vinegar or both.
