Crispy Teriyaki Turkey

Quick and Easy Crispy Teriyaki Turkey

Another creative way to eat Turkey is this quick and easy crispy Teriyaki Turkey. It’s better than chicken with more body and flavor.

Being busy sometimes means making up dishes on a whim. I’ve been so swamped with mothers day orders this week that I hardly had time to cook dinner so in circumstances like this, quick and easy is the best solution.

East Asian cuisine is one of my favorite foods because of the combination of sweet and salty. Crispy chili beef and chicken is amazing. On the other hand, preparing Turkey this way is another level of good!

Marinate That Meat

Caribbean food is all about marinating flavors into the meat so naturally I apply this method with most of my dishes, including this one.

The turkey is marinated in soy sauce and all purpose seasoning overnight. Sometimes I throw in some fresh green seasoning.

Its totally a preference however I find marinating the meat adds even more intense flavor from the inside out, not just the coating of sauce.

Corn Flour vs Flour Coating

Using Corn flour with baking soda adds a light and crisp texture. If you don’t have corn flour handy all purpose flour works as well however it is more dense compared to corn flour.

Making Teriyaki Sauce

Teriyaki sauce is super easy and only uses a few ingredients:

  • Soy sauce
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Brown sugar
  • Corn flour
  • Water
  • Ginger
  • Garlic

Once these ingredients are combined they create the most amazing balance of sweet and salty!

If this is too much work or your short on time, use store bought but I promise its really simple to make your own too.

Storing Left Overs

This dish can be kept for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

Microwave to reheat however if you want the crispy texture I suggest popping it in the oven on 350 and monitoring it or in the airfryer for a quicker warming time.
