Lemon pepper marinade is a simple but flavorful marinade for chicken or shrimp. This easy marinade recipe can also be used to make a delicious, tangy salad dressing!
Making lemon pepper marinade from scratch is so much tastier and less expensive than anything from a bottle in the grocery store!
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
3 garlic cloves, mashed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
few drops tabasco sauce
2 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl with a whisk. Pour into a large ziploc bag and add your meat (great with chicken, shrimp and fish).
Marinate in the refrigerator for two hours. If using for shrimp, only marinate for 30 minutes. I love this marinade for grilled chicken and shrimp. It’s easy to throw together and adds so much flavor!
