Paige’s Chinatown Soy Turkey
Butter, butter, soy. Butter, butter, soy. Butter, butter, soy.
- 1 whole turkey
- 1 head of garlic smashed
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger finely chopped
- 1 bunch scallions chopped
- splash of rice wine vinegar
- splash of olive oil
- 2 cups soy sauce
- tons of fresh black pepper
- 1 cup butter melted
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Wash and dry the turkey.
Prepare the marinade by mixing all of the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, except for the butter.
Baste the prepped turkey with the melted butter, and then baste with the soy marinade.
Once this first basting is done, combine the soy marinade with the butter and keep hot on the stove.
Roast the turkey at 400° for the first half hour, then reduce oven temperature to 325°, basting the turkey with the butter-soy marinade every 20-30 minutes until done (overall cook time depends on the size of your bird. Plan for roughly 20 minutes per pound.)
The skin should be pretty dark. It will also be delicious. Enjoy!
