Sriracha Grilled Turkey
Prep time: 10 minutes
Grill time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 to 6 servings
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) sriracha sauce
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) each sesame oil and sodium-reduced soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lime zest
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) fish sauce
- 1 bone-in Ontario turkey breast (about 1 1/2 lb/750 g)
- 6 to 8 romaine lettuce leaves
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) each matchstick carrot and cucumber
In a resealable bag, combine sriracha, sesame oil, sodium-reduced soy sauce, lime zest, lime juice, and fish sauce. Spoon out 3 tbsp (45 mL) of the marinade in a small bowl. Add turkey breast to bag and seal, removing air and massaging marinade into turkey. Place both in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
Remove turkey breast from marinade and place bone side down, on greased grill over medium heat. Grill, brushing occasionally with marinade from bag, turning occasionally for about 20 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in breast reaches 170 F (77 C). Remove to cutting board. Tent with foil for 10 minutes.
Thinly slice turkey off bone and serve in lettuce with carrot and cucumber. Use reserved marinade from bowl to drizzle over top if desired.
Tip: Serve the turkey with rice instead of lettuce and use the reserved marinade to drizzle over top.
This marinated turkey is perfect to freeze for a dinner later in the week. Let thaw in the fridge overnight before grilling.
