Cajun Fried Turkey
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This is a different take on fried turkey. Rubbing the spices under the skin and marinating overnight lets the flavor permeate the meat and make the skin crispier. Wrapping the turkey with plastic wrap keeps the seasoning flavor and the trick that makes the turkey superb. It's spicy and savory in every bite.
Note: When lowering the turkey keep in mind the oil has to fill the cavity of the bird so that's why it takes so long to lower. If the oil pops a little that is normal. If the oil spits at you, then you are going too fast and slow down. The Test Kitchen
