Lemon Pepper Marinade is simple to make, and it adds a fresh, zippy flavor to your seafood, chicken, or vegetables.
I have found that the key to a really good marinade flavor is starting with fresh ingredients. Don't skimp and use a bottle of lemon juice. Adding the fresh lemon pulp and skin zest both infuse more flavor. I found a little trick to get all the juice and pulp from a lemon with a little help from a tool like this Olive Wood Citrus Reamer.
I have been through many lemon juice squeezer tools, some countertop, and some handheld squeezers but none does as good a job as this little jewel. All you have to do is cut a lemon in half, insert a reamer, and twist. All the juice and pulp come out and all you have left is the lemon rind.
For this recipe, I also like to use Dualspices Mixed Pepper Corns. The combination of red, green, white, and black peppercorns gives a nice dimension of flavor.
