Units Scale

For the Marinade

  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 1/4 cup Dry Sherry or Red Wine
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground if possible)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (this is double the amount of the original recipe, but I’m garlic-crazy)
  • 1 pound turkey tenderloins, sliced to your desired widths.


  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  2. In a bowl or pan, combine all of the marinade ingredients except the turkey breasts.
  3. Pour the marinade into a self-sealing freezer storage bag.
  4. Add the turkey breasts to the bag and seal it shut.
  5. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for several hours (about 2 hours is good enough).
  6. Remove the turkey breasts from the marinade and grill on direct medium heat for 8 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer registers 170 degrees F, and the turkey is no longer pink.
  7. Discard the marinade.
  8. Serve with your favorite side dishes!
