It takes much less time to prepare and cook which means a lot less stress for this Galley Kat. …plus on the boat it would be logistically impossible. According to the Bitten Word a big trend in Thanksgiving turkey this year is towards exotic global flavours so thought I would give our little feast a North African spin. MOROCCAN TURKEY BREAST 2 tsp ground cumin…
