moulin turkey with damsons
8 turkey breast fillets, cut in half
150 ml apple juice
90 ml soya sauce
90 ml dry sherry
3 garlic cloves, skinned and crushed
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
12 damsons or plums, halved and stoned
1 tbsp chopped parsley
Place turkey in a large shallow dish and pour over the apple juice, soy sauce, sherry, garlic and thyme. Cover and leave in the refrigerator to marinate about 4 hours or overnight.
Remove turkey from marinade, reserving marinade. Heat butter and oil in a large frying pan and quickly fry the turkey until browned on both sides. Add damsons or plums, reserved marinade and pepper to taste.
Cover and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes, until tender, stirring occasionally.
Serve with green beans and boiled or mashed potatoes.
