Turkey steaks with harissa and Parmesan

Dinner times will get better if you try my new recipe for tender and crispy turkey steaks with harissa and Parmesan.

Right, probably I should not be writing it or say it in public but I am not a bog fan of turkey. Well, I am not a big fan of turkey during Christmas time. I find turkey meat very bland and tough and uneventful. But I love turkey steaks especially if they are flavoured with delicious spices and coated in Parmesan and fried. Wow, they are fantastic. That is why I made harissa turkey breast steaks coated in Parmesan – another international affair on my blog, this time between Tunisian harissa and Italian Parmesan.

How to make turkey steaks with harissa and Parmesan?

Turkey breast is such an easy option for dinner, it is like white canvas that is waiting to be painted. So this is what I did, I painted it with smoky and spicy harissa spice and salted Parmesan coating.

To make this delicious dish you need to marinate steaks first. I would advise to marinate them for at least 2 hours or ideally overnight. Then when you are ready to make the meal, you need to heat up oil, coat meat in flour, egg and Parmesan/panko mix and fry it. Oil temperature is important, it should be between 175C – 180C. It will help to achieve this crunchy coating. If the oil will be not hot enough, breadcrumbs will absorb too much oil and your coating will be soggy. Done.

Prep Time 5 mins Cook Time 10 mins Rest Time 120 mins Total Time 2 hrs 15 mins Difficulty: Beginner Servings: 5

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Dry meat with paper towel.

  2. Mix harissa spice and olive oil in a small bowl and then rub it on steaks. If possible marinate it for about 2 hours or longer if possible. Up to 12 hours.

  3. When you are ready to fry your steaks, prepare soup plates, add flour into first, eggs and milk into second ( mix egg and milk until combined) and then grated Parmesan and panko into third.

  4. Add 0.5 cm vegetable oil on a wide pan and heat it up. You are aiming for 175C degrees. If the oil is too cold, the coating will be soggy.

  5. Coat each steak in flour, then in egg and Parmesan panko mix. I have double coated my steaks, but you do not have to :)

  6. Fry for about 3 minutes each side until cooked.

  7. Add more oil if necessary as you will get the best results if you shallow fry these steaks and will have at least 0.5 cm oil on your pan.

  8. Serve hot.
