    Why don’t you smoke the turkey in a smoker, cut up some onions, celery and stuff the cavity. Pour either beer, or apple juice into the water pan, sprinkle the outside with salt and smoke it with charcoal and hickory chips. Turkey is basically low cals and if you don’t add alot of fat by butter and that to it, it should remain that way. Let the smoke give it the flavor.

    Turkey Cutlets: Chuletas de Pavo Recipe courtesy Alex Garcia
    Show: Melting Pot
    Episode: Nuevo Latino – Thanksgiving Show

    2 cups finely chopped red onion
    1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
    1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    1 cup olive oil
    1 (6 pound) turkey breast

    In a small bowl, combine the onions, cilantro, parsley, red wine vinegar, and olive oil.
    Remove the backbone from the turkey breast, keeping both sides intact. Cut the breast into 2-inch steaks. Place the turkey cutlets into the marinade, cover, and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
    Heat a grill.
    Grill the turkey cutlets until cooked and still juicy, about 5 to 6 minutes per side

    Actually, I don’t think it’s the turkey so much that you need to worry about. Rubbing the turkey with oil (I suggest canola or olive) keeps the skin moist and helps get golden brown. Doesn’t seem like that much fat really. Use chicken or turkey stock to baste it until it starts to produce enough of it’s own juices. Turkey is generally low calories (white meat has less calories than dark meat). I’d try to cut calories in other dishes such as stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams. gravy, etc.

    I normally make mine like this: To reduce your fat intake, be sure to remove the skin before eating the meat.
    15-pound turkey, fresh or frozen (thawed) 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered 1 lemon, halved 2 tbsp olive oil 6 large sprigs rosemary 6 large sprigs sage 6 large sprigs thyme 1 tsp salt Freshly ground black pepper Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    Remove giblets and neck from inside the turkey and reserve to make stock if you wish.

    Place onion, half a lemon and 4 sprigs of each herb inside the cavity.
    Secure legs with kitchen string. Place turkey breast side up on roasting rack in pan. Squeeze lemon half into a small bowl. Brush bird with lemon juice and olive oil, and add salt and pepper.
    Place in oven and roast for 15 minutes at 425 degrees for an initial blast of heat.
    Reduce heat to 325 degrees. Baste turkey frequently with pan juices plus lemon and oil, and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees – about 3 to 3 3/4 hours.
    Remove turkey from oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Transfer to a warm platter and garnish with remaining herbs.
    Serves 12.
