Serves: 4 

  • 4 small turkey breast fillets, about 120 g each
  • 30 g reduced-salt margarine
  • 4 large shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400 g thin French beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon clear honey
  • grated rind and juice of 1 orange
  • grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
  • pepper to taste

  1. Place the turkey fillets between sheets of plastic wrap and pound them to flatten to about 5 mm thickness. Set aside.
  2. Melt the margarine in a large frying pan, add the shallots and garlic, and cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes or until softened but not brown. Remove the shallots and garlic from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Place the turkey escalopes in the pan, in a single layer, and fry them for 2–3 minutes on each side.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the beans in a saucepan of boiling water for 3–4 minutes or until just tender. Drain and rinse briefly in cold water to stop them cooking. Keep the beans warm.
  5. Mix the honey with the rind and juice of the orange and lemon. Remove the turkey escalopes from the pan and keep hot. Pour the honey mixture into the pan, return the shallots and garlic, and add pepper. Bring to the boil and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Make a pile of beans on 4 plates and place a turkey escalope on top of each pile. Spoon over the citrus honey sauce, and serve.
