Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade Recipe
This mean rub adds a flavorful zest to deep-fried turkey!
This is an awesome rub for your deep fried turkey. Can also be used on chickens...just be sure to marinate in the fridge for at least 24 hrs for the best flavor. 2 days is optimal. Enjoy!!
Deep-frying your turkey means juicy meat and crispy skin, a fast cooking time, and a freed-up oven for other dishes! Here's how to deep-fry a turkey.
A chef came up with this recipe for brine used to soak a turkey before deep-frying. Sweet and salty, with hints of allspice berries, candied ginger, herbs, and fruit, the brine imparts juiciness and flavor to the meat. It's important to dry a brined turkey well before deep-frying to prevent the oil from boiling over and causing a fire or burns.
Delicious, juicy and tender, this recipe was given to me by a true Cajun sixteen years ago and has been on our Thanksgiving table ever since.
As others have mentioned, I was skeptical this recipe would work what with all the pepper etc. I tried it. The marinade was the consistency and look of very wet coffee grounds,but I forged ahead. I fried the turkey 3mins/lb plus 5 mins and when I took the turkey out it was almost completely black! I was sure it was burned beyond use. I was serving 27 guests for Thanksgiving and this was to be one of two turkeys served. I sliced a piece and tried it - it was one of the best turkeys I have ever had. Give this a try, we will be making it again. P.S. I injected my turkey with a 1/2 bottle of italian dressing strained to remove the big bits of seasoning and 1/2 cup of Reisling wine. Wonderful compliment to the delicious skin.
A garlic marinade injection paired with a buttery herb rub are the perfect duo for a tender and juicy turkey for Thanksgiving this year.
