Here’s a lovely, lean and healthy turkey recipe – the Caribbean spiced and quickly pan-fried for an easy, guilt-free dinner.
I serve this Caribbean turkey dish with rice (which is hidden under the steaks in the photo) and salad. The salad I’ve served with today is watercress and a pre-packed salad from M&S. Super easy! I’ve also eaten it with chips in the past and really enjoyed that too!
Turkey is really underrated meat which I feel most people ignore for 11 out of 12 months in the year! Not only are turkey breast steaks really quick and easy to cook – they’re also high in protein and very lean. So friendly for most diets!
Similar to chicken, they just need a bit of imagination in how to flavour them – like this Caribbean recipe! Turkey is often much much cheaper than chicken to buy too which is always a bonus!
How to make Caribbean Turkey Steaks
Scroll down for recipe card and ingredient list
1. To a dish add the sliced onions and crushed garlic cloves
2. Add the marinate ingredients
3. Then add in the turkey steaks and stir, place in the fridge, covered for a minimum of 30 minutes – but best to do so a couple of hours ahead or even overnight
4. Heat oil in a large, non-stick pan
5. Then pour the turkey, onions and marinate in
6. Cook for 3 minutes one side, then flip and cook a further 3 on the other side (until browned). Once browned on each side, turn the heat down slightly and cook until the meat is white throughout and cooked.
7. Serve on a bed of rice with salad, or with chips!
