How to Make Turkey Marinade

Step-by-Step

  • 1Peel garlic and chop with food processor and add all the other ingredients. Blend well. It should be a thick , spreadable paste.
  • 2Take your turkey and separate the skin with your hands, from the meat. Take a large handful of marinade and cover , very thoroughly, all areas of meat. Make sure to poke into wings, legs all hard to reach areas are very important to cover.
  • 3If you have any marinade left over, spread on top of turkey before start baking. I like to marinade the night before and leave in frig wrapped up.

    Bake as usual but be prepared for a delicious, moist turkey! Enjoy!
