Roasted Turkey Breast with Ginger and Orange

Yields: 4 portions.


  • 2 turkey breast, skin on
  • 2 oranges, zested juiced and flesh chopped
  • 50mL brown sugar
  • 50mL ginger, finely diced or grated
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 3 star anise
  • 20mL cardamom pods, optional
  • 20mL chili flakes
  • 15mL white pepper


  1. Sprinkle turkey breasts with salt and let it rest for 5 minutes. In a large bowl combine all the spices, ginger, brown sugar and orange. Rub the mixture to the turkey breasts and let it marinade up to 16 hours.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  3. Heat up a large pan and sear the turkey breasts until golden brown on the skin side. Flip and sear further 3 minutes. Flip back on the skin side and transfer in the oven and roast around 20-27 minutes depending on the size of the meat. Ideally use a meat thermometer and cook your breasts until it reads 150F.
  4. Rest at least 15 minutes before carving into slices.
