Peruvian Turkey Ingredients:

 

1 whole turkey, ready to roast

 

For the spice rub:

 

12 cloves garlic

 

1 tbsp dried oregano

 

3 tbsp paprika

 

1 tbsp smoked paprika

 

1/2 cup ground cumin

 

2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper

 

1/2 cup soy sauce

 

1/3 cup vegetable oil

 

1/2 cup white vinegar

 

 

 

Rub turkey all over, and under the breast skin with the rub. Let sit out at room temp for 1 hour. Rub extra rub inside cavity, but save a 1/4 cup or so to use as a glaze later. Tie legs, season with kosher salt, and roast at 325 F., for about 15 minutes a pound, or until the internal temp in the thickest part of the thigh is 170-175 F.  Let rest 20 minutes before carving.

*I like to cover the breasts with foil about halfway through the estimated cooking time. I also like to remove it, and brush on any extra spice rub (thinned with a little oil) about 30 minutes before it should be done. 

 

 

 

For the sauce:

 

1 cup crème fraiche

 

juice of one lime

 

I cup chicken broth

 

2 jalapeno

 

1/2 cup cilantro

 

 

 

Place roasting pan (pour off excess fat) on med-high heat. Puree above and deglaze roasting pan with the mixture. Bring to a boil, and cook until the mixture thickens into a gravy. Season and serve!
