Turkey kebabs - Two ways
This recipe was sent to us by Michelle, one of our online blogger mums. Her challenge was to cook a kids picnic meal for the family using turkey.
What we thought:
My kids love kebabs, food on sticks somehow seems much more fun, and that's what they suggested I make when I asked for their ideas. We were planning a picnic dinner our neighbours when the UK weather decided to unleash a torrential downpour complete with accompanying thunder storm! Undeterred we had an indoor dinner and the kebabs which were to be served in tortilla wraps with salad ended up being served with rice and mixed vegetables. 
Essential Ingredient:
Turkey Breast Fillets
For the Satay Marinade:

1 Tblsp oil

1 onion, very finely chopped

1 tsp ginger, finely grated

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 tsp curry powder

4 Tblsp crunchy peanut butter

200ml water

2 tsp honey

1 Tblsp soy sauce

1 Tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

For the Honey Soy Marinade

2 Tblsp soy sauce

1 Tblsp honey

1 tsp tomato paste

1 Tblsp oil

1 Tblsp wholegrain mustard

To serve:
Serve with mixed vegetables and rice.
These turkey kebabs are tasty and versatile.
  1. If you are using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least half an hour before you use them to avoid them burning.
  2. Make the marinades in two separate bowls.
  3. Add half of the sliced turkey to each bowl.
  4. Coat the turkey in the marinade and leave to marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Thread the turkey onto the skewers and preheat your oven to 180C.
  6. Line an oven tray with a double layer non-stick baking paper folded in the middle to form a division which will enable you to cook both flavours of kebab at the same time.
  7. Lay the kebabs on the prepared oven tray and cook in your preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes until the turkey is cooked and the juices run clear.
