Mint Chimichurri

Posted On: May 3, 2013

We previously posted a Chimichurri recipe, which is an Argentinian sauce that is often used with grilled meats. In this version we use grape seed oil in because it offers a milder flavor when paired with fish.


  • ¾ cup grape seed oil
  • 2 TBSP of red wine vinegar
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ cup finely minced fresh parsley
  • ½ cup finely minced fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup finely minced fresh mint
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients in bowl and let rest for 15 minutes to let flavors combine.

A quick alternative, which I rely on when I’m in a rush, is put all the ingredients (except the grape seed oil) in a blender or small food processor, and with the blender running steam in the grape seed oil.  The texture will be different than a hand minced blend, but the flavors combine very quickly and will taste equally fantastic.
