  • 1 - 14-15 pounds whole turkey
  • 3 limes
  • 12 garlic cloves
  • 4 scallions chopped
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 tablespoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 cup fresh marjoram chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh tarragon chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh oregano chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh sage chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 small habanero or scotch bonnet pepper (seeds and membrane removed - if preferred)


  • Clean turkey inside and out with limes, rubbing the limes halves and squeezing out the juice on the bird. Rinse with cold water and pat dry.
  • In a food processor, add all fresh herbs, spices, oil, and fresh lime juice. Blend/pulse until smooth.
  • Place turkey in a large turkey bag or a large container with a cover. Pour marinade over turkey and rub the mixture inside and out. Add the marinade carefully under the skin of the turkey breast as well. Cover or close bag. Place in a refrigerator to marinate at least 12 - 16 hours.
  • Remove turkey from refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Preheat oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit. Remove turkey from marinade and remove any excess spice on the bird. Place on roasting pan with rack and rub turkey with enough butter and oil to cover entire bird. Cover with roasting pan lid or aluminum foil and place in oven. Roast covered for 3 1/2 hours and 1 hour uncovered. Cooking time may be slightly different; please follow cooking direction on packaging. Turkey may need an extra 15 to 25 minutes to perfectly roast.


Prep time include marinating time.
