Lemon Pepper Seasoning


Lemon Pepper is more than just a bit of lemon zest and some ground black pepper. Lemon Pepper seasoning blend enhances meat, fish, poultry, tofu and vegetables. Sounds too good to be true, right? Here’s why it works.

Citrus brighten whatever dish you use it in. The acid in lemon, orange, lime and the rest of the citrus troop leaves a fresh taste behind. Cleansing the palette so to speak.

Pepper’s bite focuses flavors in the direction of the citrus. Sounds complicated but just remember this: balance.    

Balancing flavors is why this combo is so versatile. 

Lemon Pepper seasoning often contains other herbs and spices that complement both flavors. Thyme, onion and coriander appear in some blends.

I like to use lemon pepper as a rub for chicken and fish. Add a little olive oil and lemon juice and you are good to go.

This seasoning is especially good on fresh fried potato chips. It is one of our most popular flavors at work.

Give it a try!

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
