Grilling season! Is anyone else as excited as me? I sure hope so! The weather is stunning here in Toronto and it makes my heart happy to know that my kids are all home and safe away from school. We can now play, have fun, go to the park, blow bubbles, use chalk and fly kits to our heart’s content. Do you know what else it means? GRILLING TIME!
I love food, it’s no secret. I also love grilling. Not grilling myself, I love when my husband grills because he makes the best everything. But knowing we can set up the bouncy house in the backyard and the kids can bounce away while I sit and supervise and the husband can be out there with us grilling dinner and not inside in the boiling hot kitchen heating the whole house up with the oven! Grilling season! YES YES!
Today, is a good one. Piri Piri Grilled Turkey Drummettes! Canadian Turkey really knows how to do turkey, and these are amazing!
Piri Piri Grilled Turkey Drummettes
Serves: 4 | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 25 minutes
Piri Piri Sauce:
- 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 medium shallot
- ¼ cup fresh parsley
- ½ tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
- ½ cup grilled red peppers, skin removed salt and pepper to taste
8 medium sized turkey drummettes salt and pepper to season
1. Blend all ingredients using a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
- Season turkey drummettes with salt and pepper to taste.
- Place in a glass bowl.
- Marinate with 3 tbsp of Piri Piri sauce for a minimum of 30 minutes up to 8 hours or overnight.
- Grill over low to medium heat until cooked through, 20-25 minutes, turning often to avoid charring. Cook until a meat thermometer registers 165°F (74°C) in the thickest part of the meat. (Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ)
- Once cooked, remove from heat, brush with some additional sauce and let rest for 10 minutes.
- Serve with leftover sauce on the side.
TIP: For a quick way to shorten preparation time, look for jarred roasted red peppers in your local grocery store. Just drain and use as per recipe instructions.
Turkey is one of the only meats I can eat with my gallbladder issues – and let me just say I am REALLY excited to make these throughout the summer. It doesn’t get any more delicious than this my friends!
