Lemon Salt

Lemon Salt 2

I don’t really believe in buying all those special spice mixes like lemon salt/lemon pepper or garlic salt because I think about 90% of the time you already have all those ingredients and those mixes are always full of additives that either act as bulk or de-clumping agents. Bleh!

It is incredibly easy to make these mixes ahead of time if you just want to have them on hand. One I like is lemon salt because it is so versatile. It is great on fish, chicken, veggies, using in mexican food, and can even be used to rim some margarita glasses!



Lemon Salt 1



  • 1 cup of kosher salt (that is important)
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Combine salt and lemon zest in a small mixing bowl. While still stirring, slowing add in the lemon juice. This helps the salt get evenly coated and not create one big clump.

I got these great spice shakers at World Market (one of my favorite stores!). They were only  $3.99 for a set of 4 and I like that they are the perfect size for my print out labels and the twist and shake lids are great for the size of kosher salt.
