    Kookaburra's Note:

    I've adapted this from a Jamie Oliver recipe. Jamie makes it with his 'flavour shaker' but as most people probably don't have one - you can use a mortar and pestle. Use this marinade for steak, chicken or fish. It imparts a wonderful flavour. We had it with steak and it made it beautifully moist and tender and lemony - quite a different taste for steak but absolutely delicious! Quantities given should make enough to marinade 2-3 steaks or 2 large chicken breasts or 4 fillets of fish.

      Good marinade. Flavors mixed well, and were subtle. I actually cut the recipe in half for what I was doing. My lemon was not usable so I ended up using lemon juice so I used some lemon pepper seasoning in place of the pepper. I actually used this marinade over diced potatoes in the oven. (Baked at 375 for 40 minutes.) Next time I'm going to make sure I have the actual lemon, and I think I'll make it up ahead of time to let the flavors marry a bit more before baking on the potatoes.
