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!
Thanks for posting this! My mother-in-law brought me a large container of lemon-pepper from Sweden and I had no idea what to do with it.
