Thanks, Paul. Have never seen anything like it. Just concentrated lemon juice instead but this appears to be something different. Will need to go to a specialty shop and see what I can find.

Hhhm, wonder what the "flavouring" is, apart from that it seems like any old lemon juice would do.

Hi,

I use this from Tesco & it seems to work well

http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/search/default.aspx?searchBox=bevelini+lemon+dressing+%28330ml%29&sc_cmp=tescohp_sws-1_bevelini+lemon+dressing+%28330ml%29

Bevelini Lemon Dressing ... has a slighly weaker taste and acidity compared to the 'juice' variety we offer and is perfect for marinading meats and cooking home meals without wanting to overpower the dominant taste of the the meat, fish and/or other flavourings. The 'Dressing' has a 4.5 degree brix.

Wow, thanks for the extra info. So about 4.5% sugar should do.

These dressings are nothing more than watered down lemon juice with added sweetener and an acidifier such as citric acid. Using a small amount of lemon, sugar and vinegar would produce the same effect.

Wouldn't citric acid be better than vinegar, Santa ?  It is dirt cheap, available everywhere, and does not introduce what I would personally regard as an unwanted element of flavour ?

LEMON DRESSING is just convenient Lemon and it is used in more than one dish.

I also use Pride Lemon Juice which is stronger and of course I use Fresh Lemons.
Lemon is a bit like Salt and lifts the flavours of the food.

I use a wedge of Fresh Lemon or Shatkora in a few of my curries, it all depends what I have at hand when cooking.

In a restaurant Lemon Dressing is used constantly, for smoking Sizzler dishes like Tandoori Mixed Grill, Tikka, Shaslik etc...

If you haven't got any Lemon Dressing for my Madras, just throw a wedge of Lemon in at the Tarka stage.
cheers Chewy
p.s. I used to use Jif Lemon, but I found it went off and turned brown.
