The turkey was really moist. Slight citrus flavor that carried through to left-overs. Many positive comments from the family. I will definitely make this again!
Roasted Garlic & Meyer Lemon-Rubbed Turkey
From EatingWell: November/December 2010
Mellow white miso paste is the secret ingredient in this amazing roast turkey rubbed with Meyer lemon and roasted garlic. The miso gives the turkey a mildly salted taste without the hassle of brining.
3 Reviews for Roasted Garlic & Meyer Lemon-Rubbed Turkey
How can this be low sodium? When you read the labels on most turkeys the sodium content is higher than this recipe because they are infused with a brine solution, making them very high in salt content.
I decided to try most of these recipes out for to see how they stack up to the regular fare at my family's Thanksgiving dinner. This was, overall, a good recipe. I only gave it three stars though because the marinade comes out with a pretty strong citrus taste. Next time I will probably reduce the amount of zest I use. I also had to use lemons and oranges since Meyer lemons apparently don't exist in my city and that may have been part of the problem. It did keep the turkey nice and moist with the slight saltiness you'd expect. I will definitely use it for this holiday, just tweeked.
