  • Makes Enough for roughly 1 to 1.5 lbs. of fish, meat, or poultry
  • Prep Time 5 minutes

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp. Himalayan or Celtic salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. ground black pepper


Mix all marinade ingredients together. Evenly pat the meat or fish with the marinade.
