Lemon Pepper Marinade (or Salad Dressing)
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!
fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
extra virgin olive oil
few drops tabasco sauce
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
and shrimp. It’s easy to throw together and adds so much flavor!
*The nutrition serving size is 1 tablespoon.
Feel free to add additional herbs and spices to this marinade. Freshly chopped parsley and/or dill go great with bold lemon flavors.
Pork, chicken, and beef are best if left to marinate overnight. Vegetables and seafood only need about an hour.
Once stored, the leftover lemon pepper marinade will separate. Simply give the container a good shake and it should be good to go again.
Be sure to discard any marinade that came in contact with raw meat.
Use green Tabasco for great flavor without the heat.
