Amp up your Thanksgiving turkey with this tasty marinade, but keep it handy year-round because it can also be used to marinate steak, fish and chicken.


Make It

Step 1

Place garlic, bouillon and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until a paste forms. Transfer to a medium bowl; stir in olive oil, melted tangerine bars, vinegar and oregano.

Step 2

Place turkey in a roasting pan.

Step 3

Separate turkey skin from the meat carefully with two fingers. Add rub between skin and meat. Any leftover rub can be poured over turkey, making sure it covers turkey evenly. Cover with foil; refrigerate overnight to marinate.

Step 4

Remove turkey from refrigerator 1 hour prior to roasting.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Step 6

Roast turkey covered, breast side down for the first 35 minutes. Carefully turn the turkey so breast side is up. Place orange, lime and onion in cavity.

Step 7

Decrease oven temperature to 350° F and cook for 3 ½ hours or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thigh registers 165° to 170° F.

Step 8

Remove from oven and let turkey rest for 30 minutes prior to carving.
