James Beard Award Winner Chef Linton Hopkins Shares His Savory Southern Fried Turkey Recipe in Time for the Holidays

07 11 2017

ATLANTA--If you want the crispiest, juiciest Thanksgiving turkey you’ve ever had without spending all day in the kitchen, James Beard Award Winning Chef Linton Hopkins may have just the recipe for you. “I remember the first time I fried a turkey, I felt like I earned a merit badge. It’s a rite of passage for any cook. The secret is frying your turkey in 100% refined peanut oil,” said Linton. “That’s what makes the skin crispy and imparts a delicious light nutty flavor in half the time of baking it in your oven. “Refined Peanut oil is ideal because it can reach a high temperature without smoking, and it’s even non-allergenic. Frying the turkey seals the juices in. And if you brine the turkey before frying and use an injector to inject more flavor, you’ll have one amazingly moist and flavorful turkey.” The James Beard Award winner has posted his recipe for Savory Southern Fried Turkey on www.turkeyfrying.org. He likes to keep the ingredients simple and as local as possible....
