The Friday Feast recipes we select tend to be more uncommon, interesting dishes you might not be familiar with. The idea is that you might be looking for a little variety to (figuratively but sometimes literally) spice up your wild game meals.
This week's recipe is a for grilled wild turkey breast, and while it's a standard everybody should be familiar with, it's anything but plain. According to Field & Stream, who pulled the recipe from The Hot and Hot Fish Club Cookbook, this is the best grilled wild turkey breast you'll ever have.

Ingredients 10-12 3-ounce turkey breast steaks (I used one breast and cut mine in portions about the size of a deck of playing cards) 1 Tbsp. kosher salt ½ tsp. pepper 3 cloves of garlic, crushed and peeled ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Directions Toss the turkey steaks with salt, pepper, garlic, and olive oil. Cover and chill for one to two hours.
Preheat grill to medium high. Remove turkey from fridge and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Remove turkey steaks from marinade. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
That's it. It's not a complicated dish, but the results are delicious.
