Turkey Scallopini with Hoisin-Orange Sauce
From EatingWell: May/June 1991
Lean turkey cutlets take only minutes to make. Add a simple pan sauce made from kitchen staples and dinner is ready in mere minutes. Make it a meal: Serve with brown basmati rice and steamed asparagus.
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 pound turkey cutlets
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 scallions, trimmed and chopped
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons frozen orange-juice concentrate, thawed
- 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- Combine flour and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey lightly in the flour mixture.
- Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook turkey until the outside is slightly browned and the inside is no longer pink, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to plates or a platter and keep warm.
- Add garlic and scallions to the pan and sauté for 1 minute. Add water, orange-juice concentrate, soy sauce and hoisin, bring to a boil, stirring. Spoon the sauce over the turkey.
Tips & Notes
- Note: Hoisin sauce is a dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce made from soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Asian section of your supermarket and in Asian markets.
