The Best Lemon Pepper Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • fresh course ground black pepper, to taste
  • grated zest of one lemon********* I love love to add 2 to 3 tsp of honey to this recipe!
Mix all the ingredients and use the marinade immediately with meat or fish in your choice of a zip-lock plastic bag or container. Cover or seal and marinate in refrigerator. Use this as a basting sauce as well, but bring to a rolling boil before using after using as a marinade. With or without marinading first, you will find that if you are grilling, this works best for most fish. (Note: if you want to add a sweeter caramelizing effect. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey to the marinade recipe). It's great on chicken, fish, and pork chops!
