Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 230C (450F).
  2. Rinse and pat dry the turkey breast. With your fingers, carefully separate the skin from the meat and spread half of the butter under the skin. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Spread the rest of the butter on the skin along with more salt and pepper. Rub it in.
  3. Place the turkey breast in a roasting pan (as small as can fit). Pour the white wine/sherry and juice from the lemon and orange on top. Cut the juiced lemon and orange into quarters and place in the roasting pan along with the garlic and rosemary. Top the turkey breast with rosemary sprigs. 
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 180C (350F).
  5. Roast turkey for 60 minutes, then start checking the temp – a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast shall be 73C (165F). If it is getting brown, cover with aluminum foil to prevent burning. I had mine in for 1.5 hours.
  6. Let the turkey breast rest, covered, for 15 minutes before carving/slicing. Slice along the wing bone. A little pink at the bone is normal.
  7. SEE BLOG POST AND PDF DOWNLOADS FOR ALL THE SIDE DISHES.
