Ready In 35 m

  • 3 large seedless grapefruit

  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ¼ cup mild chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1½ pounds turkey cutlets (about ¼ inch thick)

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil


  1.  -Preheat oven to 400F.

  2.  -Remove the skin and white pith from grapefruit with a sharp knife and discard. Cut the grapefruit segments from the surrounding membrane, letting them drop into a bowl. Add avocados, onions, cilantro, mint, vinegar and honey. Toss well to combine and set aside.

  3.  -Stir together chili powder, cloves, allspice, cinnamon and salt in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey cutlets in the spice mixture, shaking off the excess.

  4.  -Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cutlets and cook, shaking the pan, until they begin to brown on the outside, about 1 minute. Turn the cutlets over and transfer the skillet to the oven. Bake until the turkey is no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes.

  5.  -Arrange the turkey cutlets on a platter or individual plates and spoon the avocado-grapefruit relish on top.
