Move over Lemon Pepper, Citrus pepper spice is a seasoning blend that combines the flavors of citrus fruits and black pepper. It typically includes ingredients such as dried citrus zest, black pepper, and sometimes other herbs and spices. The combination of citrus and pepper can create a unique and flavorful profile that adds brightness, tanginess, and a mild spiciness to dishes.
The citrus component often includes the zest of fruits like lemon, lime, or orange, which contains the oils and aromatic compounds that provide the citrusy flavor. The black pepper adds a warm and slightly spicy element to the mix. Depending on the specific blend, other ingredients such as salt, garlic, herbs, and even chili flakes might be included to enhance the overall flavor profile.
Citrus pepper spice can be used to season a variety of dishes, such as grilled meats, seafood, vegetables, salads, and even desserts. It can add a refreshing and zesty kick to your culinary creations, making them more interesting and flavorful. You can find pre-made citrus pepper spice blends in stores, or you can create your own by mixing dried citrus zest and black pepper along with any other desired seasonings.
