Lake Shore Drive: Five Ways

Lake Shore Drive: Five Ways

Lake Shore Drive Shallot & Herb Seasoning has been a customer (and staff) favorite, for more than 40 years. While this elegant, all-purpose seasoning is delicious for nearly every savory application, it’s always helpful to have specific inspiration. We are delighted to share some of our favorite ways to cook with this signature seasoning. If you have a favorite way to cook with Lake Shore Drive Seasoning, leave us a comment below.



Inspired Seafood

Pan-fried, oven-roasted, grilled, or poached…this seasoning is a must-have for seafood. The light, allium flavor is especially good with fish like perch, cod, trout, tilapia, and whitefish. You can never go wrong with salmon or tuna filets either. Try this salmon en papillote recipe for an easy dinner that feels fancy.

Shellfish are outstanding with this seasoning. Scallops, shrimp, and fried oysters are particularly delicious. Simply fry them in butter or bake them with olive oil and a generous sprinkle of spice.

Fish frys are fabulous with Lake Shore Drive Seasoning. You can make a basic flour dredge by mixing 2-3 tablespoons of seasoning into a cup of all-purpose flour or panko bread crumbs.


Delectable Vegetables

From artichoke to zucchini, vegetables sing with flavor when they’re perfectly seasoned. It’s simple, combine equal parts olive oil and Lake Shore Drive Seasoning for an exceptional vegetable marinade. You can season any preparation of vegetables by following the previous tablespoon measurements per pound of veggie. Add an optional splash of fresh lemon juice for an extra pop of flavor. We love Lake Shore Drive for our zucchini pancakes and roasted potatoes, but don’t let us stop you there.



Marvelous Mac and Cheese

For an over-the-top, “pass me more please,” dish of mac ‘n cheese, add a dash of Lake Shore to the mix. You can whisk it right into the cheese sauce for more depth of flavor. This all gets even better with a baked mac ‘n cheese casserole. For every cup of buttered breadcrumb topping, add a tablespoon of seasoning. Just make sure you use plain breadcrumbs so the spice blend can shine through.


Exceptional Eggs

Eggs, butter, and a little saute pan skills are all you need to create a classic omelette. For a life-changing omelette, whisk a little Lake Shore Drive Seasoning right into the eggs. Half a teaspoon per egg is a good amount to start with. You can follow this measurement when seasoning your own egg scramble skillet or egg casserole dish. We also love sprinkling Lake Shore Drive over our fried eggs at the table.


Delicious Dips and Dressings

The next time you’re curating a crudite, consider whipping up a side of dip with Lake Shore Drive Seasoning to go with the veggie sticks. Try mixing a tablespoon or two of seasoning into a cup of sour cream or yogurt. You can also try this when jazzing up plain mayo for an inspired sandwich spread.

Create a basic vinaigrette by whisking equal parts olive oil and your favorite vinegar with a sprinkle of Lake Shore Drive seasoning. Add a small teaspoon of dijon mustard for extra edge before drizzling and dressing your favorite bowl of greens.

I am fortunate enough to have a half jar of Lake Shore at this time, but just viewing that gorgeous photo prompted me to comment. Lake Shore, how do I love thee! Let me count the ways! I simply cannot be without it and have gotten both of my daughters hooked on it as well.
Thanks for making this great product. 🙋‍♀️

Can’t wait to try the Lake Shore Drive Seasoning – I use the Parisian Shallot mixed with a little mayo for an egg salad sandwich that is awesome!

For those who bake: try adding this wonderful shallot & herb blend to your dinner roll dough. The resulting rolls are great with soup! Also, adding it to bread dough makes a delicious loaf for turkey or ham sandwiches.

Absolutely my favorite all purpose seasoning. And thanks for the recipe for dips, salad dressing, eggs, and fish! I’ve used this for years to roast potatoes and in my macaroni salad dressing too- my husband’s favorite ❤️

I fell in love with this seasoning back in the early ‘90’s at the Milwaukee store where it was called “Fox Point Seasoning”. It and some of your other great blends have kept me a loyal Spice House customer for 30 years!
