Ingredients

1 (10-12 lb.) turkey, fully thawed and dry* (See Cook's Note)

1 (16 oz.) jar Cajun Injector® Creole Butter Marinade

1 (8 oz.) jar Cajun Injector® Cajun Shake Quick Shake Seasoning

3 gallons Cajun Injector® Frying Oil

Cajun Injector® Electric Turkey Fryer or Gas Turkey Fryer 

Directions

  1. Place your turkey in the Cajun Injector® Electric Turkey Fryer. Fill the fryer pot with water until your turkey is completely submerged. Remove turkey from pot and mark the water line (this line will change depending on what size turkey you choose). Drain water and dry pot completely. Fill your fryer pot with Cajun Injector® Frying Oil, making sure to stop at the line that was previously marked. Heat oil to 400°F. While waiting for the oil to heat, remove the giblets from your turkey and discard or reserve for gravy. Rinse turkey thoroughly and pat dry. Inject your Cajun Injector® Creole Butter Marinade into the breast, thighs and legs. Sprinkle turkey generously with Cajun Injector® Cajun Shake Quick Shake Seasoning and rub it in with hands. Place turkey in fry basket and slowly lower basket into properly heated oil. Fry turkey 3½ minutes per pound. Juices should run clear when turkey thigh is pierced with fork. Hang basket from fryer hook to drain or use Cajun Injector® Quick Drain System. Slice turkey and enjoy the juiciest, most flavorful and fastest Thanksgiving turkey!

Cook’s Note

It is very important that your turkey be fully thawed and dry. Frozen turkeys will cause your pot of oil to burst into flames, harming you and others around you.
