Trinidad Lemon Garlic Marinade Seasoning

This recipe came to us from a Caribbean actor who was in Milwaukee on a tour. Once he claimed his mother made the best fried chicken on their island, we mixed this seasoning up on the spot from the ingredients he remembered. He said he would be proud if we sold it in our store, provided his mother never found out!

This simple, yet classic seasoning is also good for fried fish, grilled chicken wings, steaks or hamburgers, salads or eggs.
For the marinade, mix about 1 tablespoon spice with 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup vinegar. Pour it over whole chicken, or four large chicken pieces, and marinate overnight before cooking. Try substituting various liquids and oils to provide interesting variety!
To use as a dry rub seasoning, just sprinkle on 1 teaspoon per pound of meat (chicken or fish are best) before grilling.
Hand mixed from: coarse Kosher flake salt, powdered California lemon peel, granulated garlic powder, ground Zanzibar cloves, powdered ginger. Sodium content 752.04 mg per teaspoon; 23.21% sodium
