Posted by Cathy Dickerson

You can use turkey breasts sliced across to form thinner steaks, or go one step further and create escalopes by putting individual turkey steaks into a plastic freezer/storage bag and pounding with a rolling pin until about half the thickness.

Ingredients (2 - 3 servings)

- About 300-350g of turkey breast made into steaks or escalopes as above

- 1 red onion (peeled and chopped)

- 2 cloves of garlic (crushed or chopped)

- Zest and juice of 1 lemon

- 2 teaspoons of honey

- 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil or coconut oil


    • Heat oil in a non stick pan over medium heat.

    • Fry onions and garlic for about 3 minutes.

    • Remove from the pan and keep to one side.

    • Add a little more oil if needed, heat pan and place turkey in pan.

    • Cook for about 3 minutes each side if escalopes. or 4-5 minutes each side if steaks.

    • Remove from pan and return onions and garlic to pan.

    • Add lemon zest, lemon juice and honey. Mix well.

    • Return turkey to pan, cover, and turn heat down to low.
