What is Lemon Pepper?
Lemon pepper seasoning has two main ingredients: Lemon and black pepper. Most recipes mash lemon zest with black pepper until the two are infused together. Then the mix is baked and dried, with other ingredients added to provide additional flavours. Other common ingredients include garlic powder and salt, with some recipes adding herbs to the mix, creating an aromatic and flavoursome combination.
The seasoning is extremely versatile and can be added to poultry, seafood, soup, salads, meat, rice, and so much more. Read Here...
