Cajun Deep-Fried Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
We've discovered frying turkeys in Austin, Texas ten years ago. When we came to the Florida Keys, we discovered Mojo Criollo, the Cuban marinade. Strain this and inject. It's soo much better than the commercial injectables! We spread a generous mixture of mustard, Tony Cachere's cajun seasoning and Worcestershire sauce between the body and the skin and let the turkey sit overnight. I agree, measuring the amount of oil needed by immersing in water rather than oil is much more economical. Just make sure it's dry before lowering it into the hot oil!
