Ingredients

Avocado-Grapefruit Relish:

1 large seedless grapefruit

1/2 small avocado, peeled, pitted and diced

1 small shallot, minced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar

1 teaspoon honey

Spiced Turkey:

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder (see Note)

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 turkey cutlets (8 ounces)

1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

  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.
  4. Note: Often a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns, five-spice powder was originally considered a cure-all miracle blend encompassing the five elements (sour, bitter, sweet, pungent, salty). Look for it in the supermarket spice section.
