Get in the Swing of the Season with Canadian Turkey! #GrillCdnTurkey

Yes, the dog days of summer may be over soon, but that does not mean that the good times have to end! Barbecue season is in full swing. This is the perfect time to fire up the grill to prep some scrumptious and healthy meals on the grill.

Those of us living above the 49th parallel will carry on cooking outdoors well after the sunny days of summer have passed us. Some of the regular favourites will highlight many meals on Canadian grills, but would you like to shake things up where flavour is concerned? Canadian Turkey wants to help Canucks to get into the swing of the season. They shared some easy meal solutions with us to get you out of the kitchen and enjoying what is left of the gorgeous weather in our fair country.

Can you count the amount of times you have either been at the helm of the grill or have been the recipient of a meal that has been created on the grill? Canadians love barbecue season. Whether it is seared, braised, roasted or smoked, turkey is a fabulous fowl to serve to family and friends.

Turkey on the grill? Are you serious?

YES! Turkey is the perfect protein to prepare on the grill. This bird makes meal planning, prepping and cooking your meal simpler and quicker. Marinating turkey earlier in the day makes prep time shorter. This gives the cut of bird more flavour and is ready to go right on the grill when you are ready. Did you know you are able to choose turkey cuts that cook in a flash while you watch over them, or, with a watchful eye, cook larger cuts low and slow. With a few choice veggies to cook alongside your turkey, you can prepare your whole meal at the same time on the grill. Not only does it make cooking your meal easier, it makes your post-meal cleanup super quick since there are less pots and pans used.

Isn’t Canadian turkey only served on special occasions? 

No way! Canadian turkey is a fabulous choice for any time of the year, especially when barbecuing. It is great to cook for a family or a large group when entertaining in your backyard. Turkey is also a fantastic choice to make for weekend get-togethers, neighbourhood gatherings, picnics, family celebrations, outdoor sporting activities, parties during long weekends, or to pack for kids to put into their lunches and snacks for day camps. A whole bird makes it easy to feed a gaggle of people economically, and are fabulous to use as leftovers for another meal. Canadian turkey should be a constant on your table all summer long!

How hard is it to add flavour to Canadian turkey?

It is not hard at all! Need a bit of help figuring out how to do it? Take a look at these tips to help get the most flavour out of some of the more popular turkey grilling recipes:

  1. Use dry and wet rubs to season your turkey cuts. Turkey loves a wide variety of herbs and spices, so feel free to experiment with your favourite flavours to enhance taste and texture.
  2. Flip it! Use the flip-often method when cooking over direct heat to avoid burn spots and achieve even browning and crisping.
  3. Leave it alone! When cooking over indirect heat, leave your turkey cuts alone without turning or flipping very often to allow for even cooking and browning.
  4. Know when your meat is done! Use a meat thermometer to check doneness and avoid overcooking.
  5. Cook your entire meal on the BBQ – appetizers, side dishes, vegetables and even desserts can be cooked over the grill. Visit canadianturkey.ca to explore all kinds of amazing grilled turkey recipes.

Wait! You need a recipe to start your grilling adventures this summer?

Don’t worry! Canadian Turkey has you covered! They shared this Cedar Planked Grilled Turkey Breast Roast with Charred Tomato Salsa recipe to inspire you to get grilling this summer!

Cedar Plank Grilled Turkey Breast Roast with Charred Tomato Salsa
Serves 4
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 3 lb Canadian turkey breast roast, boneless and skin-on
  2. 2 tsp salt
  3. ¾ inch thick cedar plank, soaked at least 6 hrs to overnight
Marinade
  1. 1 cup white wine or beer
  2. ½ cup olive oil
  3. 6 cloves crushed garlic
  4. 4 sprigs of sage
Salsa
  1. 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  2. 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  3. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  4. 1 tbsp olive oil
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a medium-sized deep glass bowl or Ziploc bag. Marinate the turkey breast roast for a minimum of 2 hrs, turning at least once every hour to coat.
  2. Wipe the roast of any excess marinade. Season with salt.
  3. Place roast on cedar plank.
  4. Heat BBQ to medium. Cook the roast over indirect heat (turn one burner off and place plank over this burner. Leave the other burners on).
  5. Cook for 50 mins – 1 ½ hrs until meat is cooked through and registers 165°F (74°C) on a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat. (Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ.)
  6. Once cooked, remove the roast from the grill and let rest for 20 mins before slicing.
  7. While the roast is resting, make the tomato salsa.
  8. Grill tomatoes over high heat until soft and blistered, 3-6 mins. Leave the tomatoes on the vine or use a grill basket for easier handling.
  9. Remove from heat and season with olive oil, thyme and vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sliced roast.
Notes
  1. Use any turkey roast leftovers to make a hearty and healthy salad for dinner or lunch the next day.
  2. Visit canadianturkey.ca and search for ‘salad’ to access our library of inspirational recipes.
