An elegant entree - roasted turkey breast, permeated with the piquant flavors of citrus and rosemary.


1 (5-6 pounds) whole boneless turkey breast, skinned
3 large shallots, minced
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh rosemary, chopped or 4 teaspoons dried
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
fresh orange slices
fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 325°. Line a roasting pan with foil sprayed with vegetable spray.

Pound turkey breast to flatten. Place turkey in a sturdy, sealable plastic bag. Mix all marinade ingredients together and pour into bag with turkey.

Reseal tightly and allow to marinate in refrigerator at least 6 hours or overnight.

Place marinated turkey breast on rack in prepared pan. Roast for approximately 2 hours, or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 180°. If any marinade remains in bag, use to baste turkey occasionally during roasting.

To serve, garnish with orange slices and parsley.
