Spiced Turkey with Avocado-Grapefruit Relish

Avocado-Grapefruit Relish:
  • 1 large seedless grapefruit
  • 1/2 small avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
Spiced Turkey
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp five-spice powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 turkey cutlets (8 ounces)
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
1. To prepare relish: Remove the peel and white pith from grapefruit with a sharp knife and discard. Cut the grapefruit segments from the surrounding membrane, letting them drop into a small bowl. Squeeze out remaining juice into the bowl and discard membrane. Add avocado, shallot, cilantro, vinegar and honey. Toss well to combine.
2. To prepare turkey: Combine chili powder, five-spice powder and salt on a plate. Dredge turkey in the spice mixture.
3. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until no longer pink in the middle, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve the turkey with the avocado-grapefruit relish.

Robyn's notes: Served with Herbed Whole-Wheat Couscous and a side of salad greens. This was a slightly more complex meal than usual because it was his birthday, but it still wasn't too complicated and didn't take long, just about a half hour. Was quite good, and was nice to be able to use grapefruit from our own tree.
