What is lemon pepper? About the ingredient lemon pepper. Including 101 recipes with lemon pepper, and where to find it.


Lemon pepper  (also called  lemon pepper seasoning) is a seasoning made from granulated lemon zest and cracked black peppercorns. The lemon zest is mashed with the pepper to allow the citrus oil to infuse into the pepper.

This mix is then baked and dried and can be used on meats (particularly chicken) and pasta, although it was originally used primarily for fish. It may also be used in a similar manner to season tofu.

Lemon pepper is generally commercially available in small jars, although it may also be homemade. Commercially available lemon pepper may also include smaller amounts of other ingredients such as salt, sugar, onion, garlic, citric acid, additional lemon flavor,cayenne pepper, and other spices.
