How To Make Cajun Turkey
Start with brining your turkey. You can get the full instructions here. Brining the turkey a day ahead seals in the flavorful juices and prepare it to absorb all the amazing flavors.
Making cajun turkey is a simple straightforward process. All you need is cajun seasoning and butter. With cajun seasoning, you have two options – homemade or store bought. I have opted for store bought seasoning, just to keep the recipe super simple.
Make sure you melt the butter and then combine it with cajun spices to make a beautiful paste. Rub this paste all over the turkey including ‘under the skin’.
Place the marinated turkey on a wire rack in a roasting pan. You can also place the turkey on a bed of veggies which will in turn absorb all the delicious juices from the turkey to make flavorful gravy. I also like to pour in some stock or broth in the base of the roasting pan to keep the turkey moist and succulent. Don’t forget to baste the turkey every 30 minutes with the juices from the pan.
Succulent moist cajun turkey for a delicious thanksgiving feast!
