Cooking baked turkey meat in spices:

Step 1: preparing the solution.

In order for us to get tasty and juicy meat, it must be immersed in a special solution. To do this, pour purified water into a deep bowl. Pour salt with a spoon. The liquid should be very salty, so after each stirring of salt, try the water with the tip of your tongue. In order for the salt to dissolve faster, you can warm the water to a warm state. And then add a pinch of black pepper. Once again, mix well with a spoon and move on to the next step.

Step 2: prepare the turkey meat.

First, the meat must be washed well under running water. And after that we put it in another deep bowl. Now you can pour the main ingredient with our solution so that the water completely covers the meat. Then put the turkey in the refrigerator for 2 hours. An interesting fact is that the name "turkey" is associated with the bird that appeared among the Indians. Although in fact in many countries it is called - "Turkey", since they consider it its homeland - Turkey. And by the way, this bird can fly, unlike her relatives from the order of chicken.

Step 3: prepare the garlic.

We clean the garlic from the husks and tails with a knife. We rinse it under running water and put it on a cutting board so that water is from the glass ingredient. A few minutes before working with meat, cut the garlic along 3-4 piecesso that the juice stands out.

Step 4: prepare the spices.

We take a bowl and a spoon pour all the spices there for the dish. In fact, here is to your liking. Here, for example, a spice such as basil is slightly bitter in taste, but with a sweetish aftertaste. By smell, it may resemble cloves or nutmeg. But, for example, curry is a mixture of Indian spices, which are ideal for cooking meat dishes. It gives the meat a pleasant aroma and colors it in a delicate yellow-brown color. And, of course, savory! This spice arouses appetite and promotes good absorption of food. In addition, she has a very spicy aroma. Here it can be added a little bit, if you have not used it in dishes before. So, with a spoon we mix all the spices until a homogeneous mixture is formed. After - add a teaspoon of olive oil. It will also give a pleasant aroma to our turkey meat. In addition, he will combine all the spices. Therefore, once again, mix everything well with a spoon and leave aside for now.

Step 5: Cook the Baked Turkey Meat in Spices.

The meat has already been infused in the refrigerator. It's time to get it out and dry it with a paper towel. On a cutting board with a knife, we make shallow cuts on the pulp of a turkey. And now with our hands we place in each incision a piece of garlic clove. After that, cover the baking sheet with baking foil so that one of its sides extends beyond the edge of the container. On this side we will cover the meat in the cooking process so that it turns out juicier. The foil no longer needs to be lubricated, since the meat does not burn during cooking. And all this is because before baking, we coat the dish with olive oil and spices with our hands.

Step 6: serve Baked turkey meat in spices.

There is the last touch and you can invite your relatives and friends to the table. While we process meat with spices preheat the oven to 250 ° C. And then bake the dish 15-20 minutes. But that is not all! Since the turkey is somewhere between chicken and beef by the softness of the meat, we leave the dish in the oven off for 2 hours. In no case do not open the oven door so that all the heat does not come out! Only then the meat will be very soft and tender. You can serve such a dish with such a side dish as mashed potatoes or just with fresh vegetables. And also different meat sauces go well together. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - Such a dish, of course, is better to cook from fresh meat! But, if you have a frozen turkey on hand, first defrost it. In no case accelerate the process - do not put it in warm water or in the microwave. Let it warm itself to room temperature. If there is a lot of meat, just put it on the bottom shelf in the refrigerator and wait a few days. Only due to the time the turkey fillet will turn out juicy, soft and subject to further processing.

- - As for the spices! It is better to mix all the spices on your own, since the finished ones differ somewhat in their taste and go in equal proportions. Just add each spice as you like. Something more, something less.

- - You can cook Baked turkey meat not only in spices, but also add slices of apples or orange. Then on a baking sheet we spread pieces of fruit on the edge of the meat. And they already in the process of baking will give juice and saturate the dish with their aroma.
