  • 1 clove garlic, chopped fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Put the lemon zest and juice, shallot, garlic, cumin, and paprika into a large bowl and whisk until the mixture is thoroughly blended.
