Grilled Chermoula Lamb Loin Chops

Chermoula or charmoula is a marinade and relish used in the Maghreb countries cooking. It is traditionally used to flavor fish or lamb, but it can be used on other meats, seafood or vegetables.

Chermoula Sauce

  • 300g (3 cups) fresh coriander/cilantro
  • 100g (1 cup) flat leaf parsley, leaves only
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 5g (1 tbsp) dried cumin
  • 5g (1 tbsp) sweet paprika
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) extra virgin olive oil
  • 2g (1 tsp) salt
  • 1 whole (or 10 slices) preserved lemon

  • 8 lamb loin chops


  • 4


  • Prep: 10 min
  • Cooking: 10 min




- Place all the ingredients in your K-Mojo DigiMaster’s with the Chopping Blade attachment on.

- Give the ingredients a blitz. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of water to loosen it up.

- Empty the sauce into a large mixing bowl and toss the lamb chops in the chermoula marinade, ensuring to cover all surfaces.

- Marinate at least 8 hours, or preferably overnight.

- Place the lamb chops on a hot barbecue or griddle pan.

- Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium rare. Alternatively, cook to desired doneness. (This depends on the thickness of the actual chops as well.)

- Once cooked, serve or top with more sauce. Enjoy!


TIP: Serve with wild rice or new potatoes, plus asparagus or your favourite greens.
