North African Spiced Turkey with Avocado-Grapefruit Relish

From EatingWell:  November/December 1995, EatingWell Serves Two

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.

6 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  5. Arrange the turkey cutlets on a platter or individual plates and spoon the avocado-grapefruit relish on top.
