This is definitely not your typical roasted turkey holiday dish. Enjoy this meal with a side of brown rice and steamed greens.


  • 1/2 cup whole almonds with skin, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet smoked Spanish paprika (pimenton)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup olives with pimento, rinsed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 to 1-1/4 pound 1/4-inch thick turkey cutlets
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Cook the almonds, paprika and oil in a small skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently, then add the olives, stir and remove from the heat.
  2. Season each turkey cutlet on both sides with some salt and pepper, and then place in a large heated sauté pan over medium high heat.
  3. Cook the cutlets for 6 minutes, turning once, and then place on a serving platter. Spoon the olive and almond mixture on top of the cutlets and serve immediately.
