I have always had a love affair with citrus and will pretty much use it anything I can get away with. This super simple lemon Dijon marinade is the perfect vehicle to make my citrus fantasies come true – packed with fresh lemon, honey, Dijon mustard and flavorful spices. I LOVE it on chicken but it’s pretty delicious on shellfish and even on vegetables!

Although I think the best part is that it uses simple ingredients I easily keep on hand and can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. So easy. So delicious. So perfect.
