soy and lime pan-fried turkey

leftover turkey slices has never tasted so good..

Happy Thanksgiving! Still mulling over what to do with tons of leftover turkey? Try this recipe. Even my daughter who doesn’t like turkey at all ate this for leftovers. It’s really easy and you probably have the ingredients at home already.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs leftover slices of turkey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, preferably low sodium
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Directions:

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Whisk together soy sauce, lime juice, garlic powder and ground pepper to create a marinade. Dip turkey slices in marinade and cook each side for 2-3 minutes.  Serve.

Enjoy!

lemon cilantro rice

lemon cilantro rice

This is a good side dish for seafood and pork dishes. It’s very simple and easy too!

Tips:

  1. I don’t like very lemony rice but if that’s what you prefer, add more lemon juice.
  2. Long grain rice is the suggested ingredient but Jasmine will work too.
  3. Long grain rice has a 1:1 rice to liquid ratio. If you are using other varieties, check the rice to liquid ratio.
  4. You can never have too much cilantro so add as you wish.

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (about 1 whole lemon)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • salt

Directions:

Heat oil in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Add rice and stir for 1 minute. Slowly stir in chicken broth and lemon juice then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Add cilantro, cover and continue to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and fluff rice using a fork before serving.

Enjoy!
