Marinated Turkey Kabobs with Smoked Paprika, Cumin and Turmeric

I mentioned that I recently discovered turkey tenderloin at the supermarket and knew it would be something different for grilled kabobs. To further test that theory I fired up Bella and these Marinated Turkey Kabobs with Smoked Paprika, Cumin and Turmeric did not disappoint! After seeing several recipes calling for smoked paprika I finally picked up a jar and I'm glad I did, it brings a nice smoked flavor without adding any heat. My biggest issue was trying to decide what I liked better with each bite of turkey, the onion, pepper or pineapple... Not a bad problem to have:@)
Any leftover turkey is really good on a salad. I do highly recommend planning to make extra for another meal.
You don't have to make kababs, this would be a great marinade on thinly cut turkey, chicken or pork chops.
I think you'll like this recipe if you give it a try folks!

Marinated Turkey Kabobs with Smoked Paprika, Cumin and Turmeric-from a hint of honey
2 lbs turkey tenderloin cut into 1" pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 C red wine vinegar
1/2 C olive oil
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp black pepper
Any veggie or fruit add-ons that sound good, onion, peppers, pineapple, zucchini, etc.
A little olive oil and S&P to mix with any vegetable you're using
~Mix everything (except turkey and veggies/fruit) well, add turkey and marinate in fridge for 2-4 hours.

Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  1. Smoked paprika is wonderful isn't it. I always have some on hand, but forget to use it when I get busy, so thanks for reminding me. I can see why it would be hard to chose between the pineapple, onion and pepper with the turkey bite.

  2. That's a great combination. I'm always looking for ways to get more turmeric into our diets so I'll definitely give that marinade a try.


  3. Mmmmm another wonderful grilled meal, Lynn. Little Terra Bella is earning her keep and producing some lovely meals, with your expertise!

  4. Yum! Your kabobs look wonderful- I'd love to have your problem! :)

  5. My doctor told me to incorporate more turmeric into my diet as it helps keep our brains sharp, so this is a great way to do that,Lynn! I like drilling kabobs and usually use chicken breast but turkey is even more flavorful!

  6. That looks so good! We love making k bobs and like to slide the goodies into toasted pita bread and chow down! heehee! Enjoy your day! Hugs!

  7. Lynn, you truly do need your own cooking show! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. I agree. You do need your own cooking show. We need kabobs at the lake this weekend. I'm starting my grocery list now.

  9. Turkey tenderloin? What next? I always come here to find good ideas and you never disappoint.

  10. Yum Lynn, just Yum! :) Have a great day!!

  15. Lynn, I'm wishing I had kabobs for breakfast now! Love your combination, especially with the pineapple :)

  16. These kabobs must have such wonderful flavor with all of those spices. When I type that word I hear Alan Rickman in Sense and Sensibility saying that word to Margaret :)

  17. I always forget about turkey as a great grill option! Your kabobs sound amazing!
