  • 2 cups fresh flat leaf parsley packed
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro packed
  • 6 garlic cloves rough chop
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 10 cracks fresh black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Fish of choice (I recommend Young's Seafood!)


  • Place the parsley and cilantro into a food processor. Pulse until rough chopped. 
  • Add the garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper to the food processor. Pulse a few times to combine. Turn the food processor on an slowly drizzle in the olive oil.* 
  • In a large bowl, add the sour cream. Whisk the chimichurri into the sour cream until smooth and combined. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight.** 
  • Bake your fish.
  • Assemble tacos with a good helping of the Chimichurri Sauce!


*Be careful, if your food processor does not have a good seal, the liquid might splash out. I suggest wrapping a towel around the top just in case.
**The longer it sits, the better it is!
