ROAST TURKEY | JAMIE OLIVER TURKEY RECIPES



Roast turkey | Jamie Oliver turkey recipes image

Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes

Yield 6 (with lots of leftovers)

Number Of Ingredients 7

4 kg higher-welfare turkey
250 g stuffing (from meat stuffing recipe)
250 g unsalted butter softened
1 bunch lemon thyme (30g)
2 clementines
olive oil

Steps:

  • GET AHEAD 1. Check the main turkey cavity for the bag of giblets; if they’re in there, remove and tip them into your roasting tray, discarding the bag. The added flavour they’ll give your gravy will be incredible – trust me. 2. Peel the onions, wash the carrots and roughly chop with the celery or the leek tops, then add to the tray with the unpeeled garlic cloves. 3. Place your stuffing in the neck cavity, then pull the skin back over it and tuck it under the bird. You’ll get a good contrast between the soft, juicy stuffing here inside the turkey, and the crispier stuff you can bake separately in a dish. 4. Place the softened butter on a board and press down with your hands. Pick over 3 sprigs of thyme, finely zest ½ a clementine and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and scrunch all together to make your flavoured butter. 5. Halve the clementines and place in the main turkey cavity with the remaining thyme – not filling it too full allows hot air to circulate, cooking the bird from the inside out and from the outside in. 6. Get your turkey and use a spatula to work your way between the skin and the meat. Start at the side of the cavity just above the leg and work gently up towards the breastbone and towards the back so you create a large cavity. Pick up your butter and push it into the cavity you’ve created. Use your hands to push it through the skin right to the back so it coats the breast meat as evenly as possible. Do the same on the other side. 7. Drizzle the turkey all over with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and generously sprinkle from all sides with salt and pepper. 8. Cover the turkey snugly with tin foil and place it on top of the trivet in the tray. ON THE DAY 1. Take your turkey out of the fridge 1 hour before it’s due to go in the oven. 2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. 3. You want to cook a higher-welfare bird for 25 to 30 minutes per kg and a standard bird is 35 to 40 minutes per kg. For a 4kg bird, pop it in the oven for 1 hour 40 minutes, basting several times with all the lovely juices in the tray and covering with foil when beautifully golden brown. 4. The simplest way to check it’s cooked is to stick a knife into the thickest part of the thigh – if the juices run clear, it’s done. 5. Use heavy-duty tongs to lift up your bird so all the juices run from the cavity into the tray, then transfer the turkey to a platter and leave to rest for up to 2 hours while you crack on. You can cover it with a double layer of tin foil and a clean tea towel to keep warm, if you like. 6. Skim away the fat from the turkey tray, save it in a jar, and leave to cool. When cold, transfer to the fridge for cooking with at a later date. CARVING THE TURKEY 1. Once the turkey has rested, it’s time to carve. There are two ways you can do this. - The first method is to remove the wings, slice the skin beside the legs, then pull out and chop the legs off. You can either slice or pull this brown meat – it’s so tasty. Keep it warm while you move on to the breast meat. Use the full length of the knife in a nice smooth action to slice through the breast meat, transferring it to a platter as you go. - Alternatively, remove the leg as above, then feel where the backbone is and cut with the length of your knife all the way down beside it until you hit the carcass. You can then lift the whole breast off the bone. Remove to a board and slice.

ROAST TURKEY 7KG| JAMIE OLIVER TURKEY RECIPES
Don’t be under the illusion that when you remove the turkey from the oven it stops cooking. The residual heat will continue to cook the bird, giving the juices time to travel back throughout the meat, meaning a juicier bird all round. Piping hot meat is not a clever thing – warm, juicy meat, hot gravy and hot plates is the holy grail.

  • A day before you want to roast your turkey, prepare the brine mixture. In a large non-reactive container that will hold the turkey and fit into your fridge (such as a clean bucket or large stockpot) dissolve the salt and sugar in 5 litres (about 9 pints) cold water by stirring. Add remaining brine ingredients. Lower in turkey (be sure to take any giblets out of the cavity first). Make sure turkey is covered with the brine mixture (add more cold water if needed). Cover and chill for up to 24hr. 

    One hour before cooking, remove turkey from brine solution. Carefully rinse under cold running water (see GH Tip) and sit on a board. Pat dry with kitchen paper and use tweezers to pluck out any stray feathers. Allow turkey to come up to room temperature.  

    Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan) mark 5. Finely grate zest of 1 of the oranges into a medium bowl. Roughly slice the zested and unzested orange and set aside. To the zest bowl, add the thyme leaves, chopped rosemary leaves, softened butter and some seasoning. Mix.  

    Lift up turkey neck flap and use your fingers to ease the skin gently away from some of the breast meat. Work ½ butter mixture under the skin, spreading over the meat. Next, put the stuffing inside the neck cavity. Turn the turkey over on to its breast, pull the neck flap down and over the stuffing, and secure with a skewer or cocktail sticks. Weigh the turkey and calculate the cooking time, allowing 30-35min per kg (2lb 3½oz). Put half the orange slices into the central turkey cavity.

    Make a trivet in a large sturdy roasting tin with onions and remaining orange slices. Tie turkey legs together and rub over remaining flavoured butter mixture. Loosely cover tin with foil. 

    Roast for calculated time, basting occasionally (add a little water to tin if base is catching), removing foil for last 30min of cooking. To check the turkey is cooked, insert a fork into the thickest part of the breast and check that the juices run golden and clear. If there’s any red tinge to the juice, return the bird to the oven and keep checking every 10-15min. Alternatively, use a meat thermometer – the temperature needs to read at least 72°C when inserted into the thickest part of the breast. 

    Transfer turkey to a board (set aside the roasting tin for gravy); cover well with foil and then clean tea towels to help keep the heat in. Leave to rest in a warm place for at least 30min or up to 1¼hr. 

    Make the gravy. If there is excess fat, spoon some off (leaving other roasting remains in tin). Put tin over medium hob heat and whisk in flour (mashing the orange and onion slices as you go). Cook, whisking, for 1min. Gradually whisk in the wine (scraping up all the sticky bits from the base of the tin) and leave to bubble for a few min. Next whisk in 400ml (14fl oz) water and leave to simmer, whisking occasionally, for a couple of min until thickened. Strain into a warmed gravy jug or clean pan (to reheat when needed). Check seasoning, adding a dash of cream if the brining has made the gravy too salty. 

    To serve, unwrap turkey and transfer to a warm platter. Remove skewer or cocktail sticks and garnish with rosemary and fried orange slices, if you like. Serve with gravy (reheated if needed).
