Deep-Fried Turkey

Preparation, Cooking, and Total Time:

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking Time: About 42 minutes for a 5.5kg Turkey at about 175C
  • Total Time: Approximately 1 hour

  • Serves 6-8 people



  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a blender until smooth. Using a meat injector, inject about 20-30 ml of marinade per kilogram of turkey.

  2. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels. Season the bird inside and out with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

  3. Preheat the oil in a large deep fryer or pot. Carefully lower the turkey into the hot oil and fry for about 3 1/2 minutes per kilogram. For example, a 5.5 kg turkey would need approximately 42 minutes of frying.

  4. Safely remove the turkey from the oil and let it drain on a wire rack set over a spread-out brown paper bag. Allow the turkey to rest for 20 minutes before carving.
