Our family found the chermoula to be completely overpowering. Also, who came up with the 14min hands on time for this recipe??? Maybe if you have a team in your kitchen. For the average person, count on about 40 min of prep time and 30 min to cook the eggplant. This just didn't taste justify the effort for a side dish.
This may not be a fair review. Got home from the market to discover the coriander seeds I grabbed were actually caraway seeds (yes I need glasses). I also was out of parsley and so doubled the cilantro. The final change was to grill the eggplant. Still tasty and I would make it again.
