Lemon Rosemary 20 Minute Marinade

2 small lemons cut in half and juiced
1 Tablespoon dried Rosemary
1/3 cup olive oil
salt & ground black pepper to taste

In a measuring cup add all ingredients and whisk to combine.  Add to chicken, fish, pork, beef, or vegetables in a sealed plastic bag or a large rimmed bowl or tray to marinate.  Allow to sit on the counter in the marinade for 20 minutes.  This works well when allowing your meat to come to room temperature.  Throw away any excess marinade.
