DIRECTIONS

  • COMBINE all ingredients into a small container and shake well.
  • STORE tightly sealed in a cool, dry place and shake well before using.
  • SPRINKLE over fresh fish before baking, broiling, grilling or steaming, or over fresh vegetables before steaming.
  • SUGGESTION TO FURTHER ENHANCE SEASONED FISH: Coat first lightly with olive oil before seasoning. Add a small pinch of dried tarragon or crushed rosemary, then cook as desired.
  • TO PREPARE SEASONED RICE: Use 1 1/2 teaspoons Lemon and Dill Seasoning with each 1 cup water used for steaming rice. Or, you can use a portion of bouillon with water (2 cups water + 1 cup rice + 1 1/2 teaspoons Lemon and Dill Seasoning + 1 cube or teaspoon bouillon). To further compliment fish and seafood dishes add 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon. Bring to a boil over stovetop for one minute. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. Serves 4.
  • TO PREPARE SEASONED RICE PILAF: Saute 1 tablespoon of 3/4-inch broken spaghetti or orzo pasta with 1 tablespoon slivered almonds in 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil until golden. Add 2 cups low-sodium broth, 1 1/2 teaspoons Lemon and Dill Seasoning, 1 cup rice, and 1 teaspoon capers if desired. Bring to a boil over stovetop for one minute. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork. For Greek-style pilaf add a pinch each dried crushed mint and oregano before boiling, then fluff rice with 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese after steaming. Serves 4.
