Sesame Crusted Turkey & Spinach Salad

I made this recipe with a two friends in mind. One’s a Paleo-head (guess who?) and the other a young father with another on the way who’s trying his hand at this healthy cooking stuff. There’s not a whole lot the latter guy eats that doesn’t resemble meat and potatoes but lucky for me he just so happens the likes raw spinach. I’m a big fan of salads for dinner in the summer as long as they’re satisfying, you know what I mean. If the salad is wimpy we’re going to bed hungry and that’s definitely not a good thing. Of course I put this one to the test myself and it passed with flying colours. The sesame seeds not only added a lovely nutty flavour but also added nutrients and minerals that left me quite satisfied indeed.

Serves 2

1 lb organic turkey loin
1.5 oz jar toasted sesame seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 organic egg white – slightly beaten
pinch salt (omit if you’re a die hard Paleo)
1 tbsp olive oil

  2. I tried something similar with a turkey fillet today. I sprayed it with ample quantities of spices and a bit of salt, dipped it in a beaten egg and then covered it with almond meal. Turned out a lot better than I thought. I lot better than it looked too. I grilled it for about 20 minutes. The problem was that the almond meal turned kinda black but didn’t taste burned. Maybe I’ll fry it next time…

  3. Paleo turkey cutlet…sounds great

    And all you needed to do is replace the bread crumbs with almond meal

    How about baking it in the oven?

  4. Bill – I’ve used pecan meal as an alternative. I got similar results to yours but just make sure when you do bake it you spray both sides well with olive oil spray which will help crisp up the coating but also help it from not sticking to the oven tray.

  5. This looks so delicious. I really want to try it. But, finding turkey is not easy in south korea. so i think of using chicken.
    How you think it ?

  6. Chicken will work just fine.

    Send me a picture of the finished dish and I will post it on the blog
