Lemon Pepper Rosemary Salt

My friend Jennifer gave me a jar of Lemon Pepper Rosemary Salt a while ago and it was so good! She and some friends got together and made different seasonings and this was one of the combinations they made. Now that it's officially grilling season, I thought I'd share the recipe with you. This is one you need to try!

This seasoning salt would taste great sprinkled on grilled meats, fish, streamed vegetables, and roasted chicken. I've used this seasoning on grilled chicken and roasted veggies and it tastes amazing. It has a great flavor that pairs perfectly with everything. I especially love the hint of lemon paired with the rosemary; it tastes so fresh. I'll definitely be making more of this seasoning when I get fresh fish this summer.

Lemon Pepper Rosemary Salt

Makes about 1 cup of seasoning


Grated zest of 2 lemons (about 2 tablespoons)
Fresh rosemary leaves from 2 (5-inch) branches (about 3 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup coarse sea salt


In a food processor, add the ingredients (minus the salt) and process until finely chopped, about 1 minute. Add the salt and pulse until the salt forms smaller crystals and the mixture is blended, about 30 seconds. Pack into a jar with a tight-fitting lid and store in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months for optimum flavor.

Lemon Pepper Rosemary Salt Grilled Chicken

Coat chicken in teriyaki sauce and sprinkle seasoning on the top of the chicken. Grill chicken (turning chicken over after about 5 minutes) until the internal temperature reaches 165*.

What is your favorite go-to seasoning?


  1. I am going to try this! I haven't made any of my own seasoned salts, but yours looks like the perfect place to start. Thanks!
