Kimchi Brined Turkey Breast with Kimchi and Herb Sauce

Chef Katy Sparks
Course Main Course
Servings 4 people

Ingredients
  

  • 1 boneless turkey breast 3 to 4 lbs, netting removed and un-rolled

For the Brine

  • 1 cup kimchi juice drained from a jar of kimchi
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seed
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary

For Roasting the Turkey Breast

  • ½ cup butter, melted

For the Kimchi and Herb Sauce

  • 1 cup plain sheep’s milk or cow’s milk yogurt
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup drained kimchi, minced into small pieces
  • ¼ cup cilantro, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, minced
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Combine all brine ingredients and stir well to combine. Liberally coat the turkey breast in the brine and then transfer all to a 1 gallon sealable freezer bag. Refrigerate the turkey overnight or at least 8 hours. Turn the bag over a few times to evenly distribute the brine.

Before Cooking the Breast:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Remove most of the brine and pat the turkey breast dry with paper towels.
  • Brush the turkey with enough melted butter to lightly coat all sides. Place the turkey in a roasting pan and cook for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees and continue cooking until breast has reached internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  • Baste occasionally with the remaining melted butter.
  • Once turkey breast is fully cooked, let rest for at least 20 minutes before slicing and serving.

While Turkey Breast is Roasting

  • Prepare the kimchi and herb sauce. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.

Notes
