best Chermoula Steamed Mahi Mahi

chermoula is one of my favorite sauces to have on hand. similar to chimichurri, it’s the perfect marinade or dip. traditionally, it’s used to coat and marinate seafood but I’ve made chermoula with chicken and
have had it as a sauce alongside steak. it’s delicious to dip fries and vegetables in as well! oh and don’t sleep on this chermoula tartar sauce pictured (equal parts mayo and chermoula). mahi Mahi is one of my
favorite fishes; we always buy the vacuum sealed boneless filets to have on hand for quick dinners like this! also, I don’t say this lightly but the
Moroccan olive grove bold and dynamic blend is one of my favorite olive oils I’ve used to date. it’s a family favorite and I’ve gifted it to family and friends I love it as well. it has such a unique flavor profile
-a hint of spice and a thick taste that REALLY STANDS OUT, if that makes sense. perfect for topping dips and using in marinades and dressings.
it’s different than levant sourced olive oils, for sure.
