Grilled Turkey Piccata
  • 2  lemons
  • 4  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 2  teaspoons  snipped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  1/2-inch-thick turkey breast tenderloin steaks (about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1  tablespoon  drained capers
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley

1. Finely shred enough peel from one of the lemons to make 1 teaspoon; set aside. Halve and squeeze the juice from that lemon (should have about 3 tablespoons); set aside. Cut the other lemon into very thin slices; set aside.

2. For rub, in a small bowl combine the shredded lemon peel, 2 teaspoons of the olive oil, the rosemary, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over both sides of turkey steaks; rub in with your fingers.

3. For a charcoal grill, grill turkey on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 6 minutes. Arrange lemon slices on top of turkey, overlapping if necessary. Cover and grill for 6 to 9 minutes more or until turkey is no longer pink (170 degree F). (For a gas grill, preheat gas grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place turkey on the grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine the remaining olive oil, the lemon juice, and the capers. Heat through.

5. Remove turkey steaks to a serving platter. Drizzle with the warm caper mixture. Sprinkle with parsley. Makes 4 servings.

From the Test Kitchen*
  • If you cant find turkey tenderloin steaks at your local grocery store, buy whole turkey tenderloins; then cut them horizontally into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
