A note about serious food allergies

Moroccan cuisine is a rich tapestry of flavors woven from thousands of years of Mediterranean, Spanish, and Arabic influence. Chermoula is a blend of lemon, fresh herbs, and spices that is perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood. We pair this flavorful sauce with mild and flaky tilapia fillets and a light shaved cucumber salad that fills you up without weighing you down.
