It would have been all too easy to prepare grilled turkey legs with a fruit sauce and keep it close to the traditional roast turkey that we all know and love but I thought it would be good to do something different. How about a Thai grilled turkey thigh?
Choosing the thigh rather than a whole leg makes the cooking process a lot easier because the thickness of the meat is more uniform and you don't have to worry about either under-cooking the thickest part of the joint or burning and drying out the thin end.
And just because it's Thai, don't think that there's a long preparation process and lots of ingredients to pull together, I've just plumped for a Thai green curry paste and slapped it on. (Yellow curry paste is milder if you don't want it too spicy).
It's so easy to do and I've written the ingredients based on 1 turkey thigh so it's easy to multiply up if you're doing more and add an extra bit if you're going for whole grilled turkey legs.
Check the ingredients of the curry paste that you choose to use.
I served mine with fries and a fresh salad. A little drizzle of lime juice over the salad keeps with that Thai theme and mayo on the fries.
