Nuria’s Turkey Adobado con Guava Glaze
You might smell like garlic and guava at the end of cooking the turkey, and that would not be a bad thing.
Ingredients for Abodabo Marinade
- 8 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
- 4 tablespoons fresh black pepper
- 3 teaspoons oregano
- 18 teaspoons salt
- 18 teaspoons olive oil
- 8 teaspoons vinegar
- 8 local limes if you’re not in Puerto Rico, do a mix of lemons and limes
Ingredients for Guava Glaze
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/4 cup rum
- 1/2 cup guava jelly
To make the Abodabo Marinade
Glazing the Turkey
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Wash and dry the turkey. Rub well with the adobado.
Roast, approximately 20 minutes per pound.
When it’s about 2/3 of the way done, baste with the guava glaze.
Be careful, because if you glaze it too early it will burn!
Save the remaining glaze and serve at the table, so you can dip the turkey in it a few more times.
