    January 19, 2018 by Varga László

    Ingredients:

    • 500 g turkey breast
    • 500 g rainbow carrots
    • 150 g butter
    • 200 g shiitake mushrooms
    • 4 garlic cloves
    • 100 ml amaretto liquor, Italian almond one
    • salt and pepper to taste

     

    Preparation method:

    1. Slice the breast into 4 thin slices.
    2. Chop the garlic.
    3. Slice the shiitake mushrooms.
    4. Slice the rainbow carrots.
    5. Salt and pepper on both sides the turkey slices.
    6. Melt 25 g of the butter in a frying pan.
    7. Gently fry the turkey slices on each side for 1 minute or so.
    8. Next sautee the carrots: Because I have higher and darker colors and I didn’t want to tint the ligher ones, I sauteed them in two batches in different skillets:
    9. Heat 25 g of butter in two separate skillets.
    10. Sautee in one the lighter colored carrots – yellows, oranges, greens for about five minutes. Add a bit of salt up to your taste.
    11. In the other skillet we’ll sautee the darker ones – purples and darker oranges.
    12. Separately in another 25 g of butter sautee lightly the shiitake mushrooms.
    13. Add to this skillet the seared turkey fillets, the chopped garlic, pour over the amaretto and add a bit more of butter. Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 3-4 minutes over low heat.
    14. Serve while hot the turkey fillets with shiitake amaretto sauce next to the visual splendor of the sauteed rainbow carrots.
