  • 1 lemon
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp black red, green and white peppercorn mix
  • 2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup olive oil


  • With a vegetable peeler, carefully remove just the yellow lemon peel, avoiding the white sour pith skin.
  • In a food processor or blender add the lemon peel, garlic, mustard, peppercorns, red pepper flakes and the kosher salt.
  • With the processor or blender on add the olive oil in a slow drizzle to emulsify and a thick sauce has formed. Maybe 30 seconds or so should do it.
  • Pour mixture over your chicken or pork roast and marinate as you would normally or roast and baste as it cooks.
