Deep-fried turkey actually started as a Cajun dish and the first step is a delicious injection marinade. This traditional recipe is combined and then injected straight into the turkey. Make sure that you mix this marinade well before you load it into the needle. If you are deep-frying this turkey, make sure to wipe off any excess marinade before it hits the oil.
Gather the ingredients.
Place everything in a saucepan. Simmer over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Stir and continue heating until sauce has completely liquefied.
Remove from heat and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.
Use while still warm enough to remain in a liquid state. Inject directly into the breast, leg, and thigh meat. Do this a few times to make sure the marinade is well dispersed throughout the turkey.
Wipe away any excess that may leak out. Deep fry as directed.
