An old recipe of mine which I designed in 2013 for Boxrox.com, I’d like to think my photography skills have improved since then LOL!
Turkey is not just for Christmas you know!! A favourite of fitness fanatics for decades, there is a solid reason for this!
- There is about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein.
- Considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your recommended intake.
- Turkey is believed to have mood enhancing properties. It contains tryptothan, which produces serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps improve your mood.
- Light, skinless roasted turkey is low on saturated fat and total fat. It also contains less cholesterol than chicken, pork or beef.
Honey & Lime/Coconut Turkey Fillets
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 2 turkey steaks
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup of coconut flour
- 2-4 pieces streaky bacon (optional)
- 1 packet long stem broccoli
- 1 pok choi
- 1 garlic clove crushed
- 2 tbsp soy sauce/coconut aminos
- olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 180
2. In a bowl mix the egg and lime juice until combined. On a chopping board spread out the coconut ingredients & season with paprika, salt & pepper.
3. Take the Turkey Steak and dip in the egg mix and then coat it in the coconut. Do this to both steaks until evenly coated. Place the Steaks in a glass baking dish and bake for about 15 mins (turn in between) and cook until golden.
4. While the Turkey is cooking, add some olive oil to a hot pan and quickly fry the pak choi & broccoli with garlic and soy sauce/coconut aminos (cook the bacon now if you include it)
5. When the turkey is ready you are ready to plate up, I added some avocado for extra health benefits.
