Lemon Zest (peel) is an essential ingredient to any good recipe, however we just needed MORE lemon! So we combined a slightly sweetened, crystalized Lemon Juice with Citric Acid (that pucker-punch coating on most super sour candies), giving it that Zing with the Zest. Of course there is a good amount of pepper, as to be expected, and thus the namePeppery Lemon. We also added a goodly amount of Cardamom, which has a slight lemony aftertaste to it, with the robust flavor of Rosemary. Thus, we have created the perfect Lemony blend! This is not just limited to Poultry or Fish. IT is also wonderful on any salad, including a good potato salad, eggs or ANY dish where you want that POP of lemony flavor with the mild heat of black pepper.
BEST USE FOR FISH AND POULTRY:
Apply Peppery Lemon seasoning moderately, rubbing into meat, (about 1 tbsp per lb) then gently rub on light coating of oil, (preferably Olive Oil, however vegetable or Canola Oils will also work). Allow to sit 1 to 2 hours, covered in the refrigerator, before cooking meat. Afterwards, while the portion is cooling down, sprinkle on Peppery Lemon, half as much again, This boosts and compliments the lemon flavor.
Also great on Salads and eggs!
