Cajun Deep Fried Wild Turkey Recipe #misshomemade | Thousands of recipes at MissHomemade.com

This wild turkey recipe is delicious…


Pour the peanut oil into the fryer and heat to 375 degrees. Make sure that the turkey is thawed and dried completely before submerging in the hot oil.

Tie two strings completely around the bird so you can lift it out easier. Turn off the flame before you lower the turkey in the hot oil and when done, turn the burner back on.

Fry the turkey for approximately 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 minutes per pound. The turkey will float to the top when it is done, but I like to know how long it should take.

Meanwhile, you will need the following ingredients:

2 TBS cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 stick butter, melted
When the turkey is done, remove the bird from the oil and immediately dust with the Cajun seasoning.
Add the garlic and cayenne powder to the melted butter and brush on the turkey. Allow to sit for at least 20 minutes before carving.
This is a delicious and moist wild turkey recipe.


1 gallon hot water
1 pound kosher salt
2 quarts vegetable broth
1 pound honey
1 (7-pound) bag of ice
1 (15 to 20-pound) turkey, with giblets removed

Combine the hot water and the salt in a 54-quart cooler. Stir until the salt dissolves. Stir in the vegetable broth and the honey. Add the ice and stir. Place the turkey in the brine, breast side up, and cover with cooler lid. Brine overnight, up to 12 hours.

Remove the turkey from the brine and dry thoroughly.

Mango Salsa:
5 fresh mangoes, peeled and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
3 TBS chopped onion 3 TBS fresh lime juice
3 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped

Spice Rub:
1-1/2 TBS ancho chile powder
1 TBS ground coriander
1-1/2 tsp brown sugar, packed
1-1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp homemade garlic powder
2 tsp homemade onion powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

PREHEAT the grill to high. Brush green onions with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for two minutes on each side and thinly slice into a bowl.

Add the mangoes, jalapenos, lime juice and 3 tablespoons of the canola oil. Mix and cover; set aside.

Prepare the grill for cooking the turkey; adding a drip pan, and placing coals for indirect heat. In a bowl, mix the spice rub ingredients together.

Wash the turkey and pat dry; turn the wings back to hold the neck skin in place. Un-tuck the legs and loosen the skin by GENTLY putting your hand (or knife) under the skin of the bird. Gently place the spice rub under the turkey skin, and return the legs to a tucked position. Brush the entire turkey with the remaining canola oil.

Place the turkey, breast side up, on the grill and over the drip pan. Cover and grill to a internal thigh temperature of 180 degrees and the breast at 170 degrees which takes approximately 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours.

When the turkey is done, bring in and let sit for at least 20 minutes before carving. Serve with the mango salsa. It is one of my favorite wild turkey recipes
