1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground turmeric

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

1⁄2 teaspoon wasabi powder

2 1⁄2 pounds turkey breast tenderloins, cubed

1⁄2 cup rice vinegar

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

3 tablespoons soy sauce (gluten-free, if desired) or liquid aminos

2 tablespoons yellow curry powder

41⁄2 teaspoons garlic, minced

 

Cooking tip: Turmeric and curry can stain bare skin, so wear gloves when handling, especially if you have acrylic nails.

Serving tip: Satay is typically served with a peanut dipping sauce. To make one, mix a little sriracha, stevia, and lime juice into a scoop of natural peanut butter.

 

1. Preheat the grill to medium heat or the oven broiler to high, setting the rack about 8 inches from the heat.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, lime juice, soy sauce, curry powder, garlic, turmeric, ginger, cayenne, and wasabi powder.

3. In a large resealable bag, combine the turkey with the marinade, seal the bag, and massage to ensure the turkey is well coated in the marinade to thoroughly coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or longer if desired.

4. Thread the turkey pieces onto metal or bamboo skewers. For 4-ounce servings, divide evenly among 10 skewers.

5. Grill, or broil in the prepared pan, for 10 to 15 minutes, turning over once halfway through, and serve.
