Coconut-Lime Turkey Skewers
For marinade, in a large resealable plastic bag combine coconut water, lime peel, lime juice, honey and the crushed red pepper.Advertisement
Cut turkey tenderloin lengthwise into thin strips, each about 1/4 inch thick. Add to marinade in bag. Seal bag, turning to coat turkey. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Drain turkey, discarding marinade. Thread turkey, accordion-style, onto skewers. Place skewers on the grill rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, turning once halfway through grilling. To serve, sprinkle skewers with coconut.
Tips: If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in enough water to cover for 30 minutes before using.
To toast coconut, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice, watching closely to avoid burning.
Serve with Rice Noodle Vegetable Salad.
