Lemon pepper is a well-known seasoning that home cooks can apply to everything from chicken to fish. Lemon pepper seasoning is widely used because its sweet lemon flavor is the perfect foil for the zing of the pepper. Those same flavors work well when enjoyed in a zesty, tangy lemon pepper sauce. Lemon pepper sauce complements chicken, fish or even pasta, and requires little preparation to make. Your family and guests will love its sweet yet savory flavor.
