Peppered Turkey with Cranberry-Grape Relish


From EatingWell:  January/February 1999

Although low in fat and calories, a sophisticated and creative entrée like turkey paillards crusted with pink peppercorns does not taste like spa food, especially when topped with a tart and sweet cranberry-grape relish. Make it a meal: Serve with wild rice pilaf and steamed broccoli.

  1. Cut several 1/4-inch slashes around the edges of each turkey cutlet.
  2. Crush peppercorns with a small heavy skillet or saucepan; mix with salt and rub over both sides of turkey.
  3. Brush a large grill pan or skillet evenly with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add half the turkey and cook until lightly browned and no trace of pink remains in the center, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining turkey. Top with relish and serve immediately.
