  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves mashed
  • ½ 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 sealable bag and add your meat.
  • 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!
