BritMums are currently promoting the Lean on Turkey campaign, sponsored by www.leanonturkey.co.uk and are challenging bloggers to come up with a recipe to showcase it's versatility. Did you know that turkey breast has the lowest level of saturated fat of all meats?
Here's my entry...
|Sweet, sticky and SPICY - bagsy not washing up|
For Jerky Turkey you will need:
Fresh turkey breast - one per person
1 teaspoon dried jerk seasoning
1 tablespoon tomato puree
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons of honey (I don't like honey so I used Agave syrup or similar instead)
Mix your marinade together in a large flat ovenproof dish.
Add your turkey and coat all over with a spoon. Cover and leave for at least 2 hours - or overnight if possible.
Remove clingfilm and cook at 190 degrees C for approximately 40-45 minutes, checking the meat is thoroughly cooked through before serving. Alternatively, you can barbecue these for a delicious smokey flavour.
Serve with rice and peas or with a salad and potato wedges.
I made this for the first time for dinner tonight. The verdict? The turkey was moist and tender and with just the right mouth-watering amount of spice. A real hit! Can't wait to try it on the BBQ.
