Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE:

  • 1 medium shallot quartered
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic smashed and peeled
  • 1 piec ginger root about 1-inch peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium tamari gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • pounds turkey breast tenderloins

FOR THE SALSA:

  • 3 radishes sliced paper thin
  • 3 green onions sliced thin
  • 1 serrano chile pepper sliced thin*
  • 1 mango diced small
  • 1/2 lime zested
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 pinch kosher salt or to taste

Instructions

FOR THE MARINADE:

  • In a mini processor combine the shallot, garlic and fresh ginger. Process until finely chopped. Add in the juice of one lime, oil, tamari and coarse ground black pepper. Process until combined.
  • In a shallow dish or re-sealable bag, add the turkey breast tenderloins. Pour the marinade over top and toss to coat. Cover (or seal the bag) with plastic wrap and let the turkey marinate on the counter for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your grill to high. Once hot, reduce the heat to medium-high heat and lay the marinated turkey on the hot grates. Close the lid and let the turkey grill for 6-8 minutes. Flip the turkey and continue to grill for 4-6 minutes more. Remove and allow the turkey to rest under tented foil for 6-8 minutes before slicing thin on the bias.

FOR THE SALSA:

  • In a medium bowl combine the thinly sliced radishes, serrano chile, green onions, diced mango, lime zest and juice along with chopped cilantro and a pinch of salt. Toss to combine.

FOR THE TACOS:

  • Heat the tortillas {try them on the grill for some crispy goodness} and stuff them with sliced grilled turkey. Top them off with a spoonful or two of the mango radish salsa and enjoy!

Notes

*For a less spicy version, remove seeds and ribs before mincing.
