Authentic Chimichurri

Hola, gourmets! Today we are preparing an authentic Argentine Chimichurri sauce. This sauce is perfect for grilling crab. The original recipe uses olive oil, but we replaced it with butter, so that the taste of the crab would be more creamy and delicate.

Cooking Chimichurri sauce is quite easy and simple, it only takes a minimum of effort to chop fresh herbs and mix with butter.

• Fresh garlic
• Fresh parsley
• Fresh cilantro
• Green onions
• Butter
• Salt and pepper to taste
