Curried Fig Grilled Turkey Breast (Tom)
We made this dish for our weekend guests Bubba Bob and Debbie. It is easy, inexpensive and quick.
Here is what you will need for 4 people:
- 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. boneless turkey breasts ( may be 2 pieces)
- 2 ounces rum
- 1/2 cup of fig preserves
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- salt and pepper
Spray the grill with cooking spray then pre-heat the grill to a medium flame.
Mix the glaze ingredients in a bowl. Place the breast or breasts on the grill. Cook each side for 5 minutes. Then start brushing the glaze on the breast. Repeat brushing the glaze while cooking until done. When the breast reaches 180 to 190 degrees remove and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
We served this dish with sliced grilled sweet potatoes and June's sauteed brussel sprouts. The sprouts are fantastic. June will post that recipe soon.
