Fall In Love With Fried Turkey
(NAPSA) - Home chefs everywhere are trying a new twist on an old favorite: deep-fried turkey. Mouthwateringly moist, deep-fried turkey will keep guests raving long after the last bite. Authentic turkey deep-frying starts with 100 percent peanut oil. With a high smoke point and a pleasing flavor, 100 percent peanut oil seals the juices inside the crispy, golden skin, which keeps the meat deliciously tender.
Try this recipe during the holidays, at a tailgate party or for your next family gathering:
Wash bird inside and out and allow to drain. Rub turkey with the salt, pepper, garlic and dry rub. Allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour or until completely thawed and dry.
Preheat peanut oil outdoors in a turkey fryer or a very large stockpot to 350 degrees F. Make sure there is no moisture on the skin and carefully lower turkey into hot oil either in the fryer basket or using a sturdy tool inserted into the chest cavity.
Submerge the turkey completely. Fry turkey for 3 minutes per pound plus 5 minutes per bird. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees. Remove turkey from the oil. Let sit 20 minutes before serving.
