North African Spiced Turkey with Avocado-Grapefruit Relish

North African Spiced Turkey with Avocado-Grapefruit Relish

The spice crust for the turkey cutlets is based upon a Berber blend from North Africa. The honeyed grapefruit relish provides a lively contrast to the richly spiced turkey.

Serves 6

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 large seedless grapefruit
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup mild chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds turkey cutlets, (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Step 2

Remove the skin and white pith from grapefruit with a sharp knife and discard. Cut the grapefruit segments from the surrounding membrane, letting them drop into a bowl. Add avocados, onions, cilantro, mint, vinegar and honey. Toss well to combine and set aside.

Step 3

Stir together chili powder, cloves, allspice, cinnamon and salt in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey cutlets in the spice mixture, shaking off the excess.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cutlets and cook, shaking the pan, until they begin to brown on the outside, about 1 minute. Turn the cutlets over and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake until the turkey is no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes.

Step 5

Arrange the turkey cutlets on a platter or individual plates and spoon the avocado-grapefruit relish on top.
