Seasoning – use a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in place of salt – you’ll be amazed at how delicious it is. Lemon juice is a natural flavor enhancer, just like salt. Try it on french fries and potatoes, grilled meats and fish, and over veggies with a drizzle of olive oil or melted butter.
Sauces – a squeeze of lemon juice and spoonful of lemon zest, along with a handful of herbs, turns pan juices into a gourmet pan sauce for fish or chicken. Add lemon zest to gravies for an extra splash of flavor.
Baked Goods – add a squeeze of lemon juice and lemon zest to your favorite cakes, cupcakes, and fruit pies for an added dimension of flavor. It’s also the perfect addition to fillings and icing.
Pasta – lemon zest makes almost any pasta sauce even better than before, including tomato and creamy versions. For a really simple gourmet style dinner, make your favorite pasta aioli – with olive oil and garlic – and add lemon zest and black pepper.
Salads & Marinades – lemon juice and oil, in a ratio of about 1:2, are the basis for vinaigrettes and marinades for meat, poultry, and fish. Simply add your favorite herbs, garlic, chili flakes – whatever suits the main dish.
