One of my favorite Haitian foods is stew turkey and today I’ve decided to share my recipe with you. Haitian turkey is one of those meals you can’t go wrong with. It will take you about an hour to an hour and a half depending on what you plan on making it with.
Haitian Turkey (Koden’n)
2 bags of turkey wings and drumsticks cut up
4 large lime and a half cup of vinegar (to clean the meat)
1 large onion, sliced
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cooking spoon of tomato paste
2 thyme sprigs
1/4 green pepper, sliced
1/4 red pepper, sliced
Ground spices: Haitian epices
Put turkey in large bowl and rinse turkey pieces in cold water. Drain water and firmly wipe turkey with lime halves, poor vinegar and let sit for a couple of minutes then pour and rinse with water again. Return turkey to large bowl. Add a cooking spoon of Haitian epices. Pour over the turkey, cover and let marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour.
Heat the oil. Brown the turkey for 35 minutes, covered, reserving the marinade juices. Add tomato paste, remaining onion, thyme, and pepper slices to reserved marinade juices and pour over the turkey once it’s browned. Lower heat and simmer for 35 more minutes, covered, stirring occasionally so sauce does not thicken too much. Taste and adjust salt. Serve with rice, boiled sweet potato, or plantains.
