Cajun Grilled Turkey Breast



  • 1 Fresh Whole Turkey Breast
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Directions

    Prepare covered grill for cooking. Place turkey breast in shallow roasting pan.
    In small bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Loosen skin from breast to form a pocket. Rub half the seasoning mixture under skin and remainder over outside of breast. Cover and refrigerate until coals are ready.
    Stack hot coals in a double layer at either end of drip pan with 6 to 8 unlit coals at outer edge of fire. Add 1 cup water to drip pan.
    Place turkey on grill, skin side down, 5 to 6 inches over drip pan. Grill, covered, 15 to 20 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer, inserted in thickest part of breast, registers 170° F, turning 3 to 4 times during cooking.
