Zesty Lemon-Infused Spices for Added Flavour

Lemon spices are ideal for adding a unique blend of flavour to your dishes. The zesty citrus scent and flavour works well with a number of spices, including garlic, herb and pepper. Seafood is particularly enhanced with lemon-infused spices, bringing out the subtle flavours and complementing additional ingredients in marinades, sauces, dressings, and seasonings. Which lemon spices should you add to your pantry? Let’s take a look.

Lemon Spices to Liven Up Your Dishes

Tasty, light and versatile, lemon spices are a must for any spice collection. Here are our top picks for citrus-infused spices.

Lemon & herb

Lemon and herb is a classic combination that will work with many dishes. The balance between light herbs and citrus keep this spice blend fresh, without being overpowering. You can use this blend in salads, seafood, fish, pasta, marinades, dressings, vegetable dishes, and chicken. It is great for summer cooking - make sure you have some on hand for braais and outdoor dining.

Lemon pepper

Lemon pepper is another classic combination. This spice balances the sharp taste of pepper with the fresh taste of lemon. Dried lemon zest is mashed into black pepper, which enables the citrus oils to fully converge within the pepper. It works very well in seafood dishes but can also be used in meat and chicken dishes, pasta, sauces, dressings, and vegetable dishes.

Lemon & garlic

Lemon and garlic is a more complex combination. It is excellent for marinades and sauces, which can be used to make pasta. It can also be used in Chinese dishes, rubs for chicken or meat, as a seasoning for garlic bread, in curries for an interesting flavour profile, and many other dishes as well.
