Lemon Garlic Roasted Turkey Recipe • 1 Whole turkey, freshly or frozen, thawed
• 1/3 Cup freshly squeezed citrus limon juice
• 3/4 Cup additional virgin olive oil
• 6 to 8 Cloves freshly garlic, stripped
• 1 tbsp Lemon zest
• 1 tablespoon Freshly ground black pepper
• As needed parsley or other freshly herbs
• As needed citrus limon wedges
• 1 tablespoon Salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degree F.
Remove giblets and neck from turkey.
Wash turkey with ice-cold running water and drain well.
In a blender, mix citrus limon juice and olive oil.
While blending, drop in garlic cloves one at a time and slowly add citrus limon zest, blend until mixture is pureed.
Inject marinade into all pieces of the thawed turkey with an injector, strain marinade if it is also thick to pass through the injector.
Lightly rub the turkey to distribute marinade.
Place turkey in a large plastic bag, close the bag and refrigerate it overnight.
Take aside the turkey and drain additional marinade.
Scrape off the additional marinade and discard.
Fold the neck skin and fasten to the back with 1 or 2 skewers and fold the wings below the back of the turkey and return the legs to tucked position.
Place the turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan.
Massage the turkey with table salt and pepper.
Insert the oven-safe meat thermometer into the densest piece of the thigh, cautiously so the headed end of the thermometer does not touch the bone.
Roast the turkey in the preheated oven for about 3-3/4 hours.
During the final 60 minutes of roasting time, baste it with cooking pan drippings.
If essential, loosely cover it with the foil to prevent excessive browning.
Continue roasting until the thermometer registers 170 degree F in the breast or 180 degree F in the thigh.
Remove the turkey from the oven and allow it to remain for about 15 to 20 minutes before carving.
Put it on a hot large platter and garnish it with the freshly herbs and citrus limon wedges.
