How to cook a turkey: 'Delicious' recipe from MasterChef winner Saliha Mahmood Ahmed



Preheat the oven to 160°C fan/180°C non fan/gas mark 4. Pat the skin of the turkey dry with some kitchen towel.

Remove the wishbone by gently pulling back the neck skin until you can see it, then use a sharp knife cut underneath the bone, just deep enough to ease it out.

Place the turkey in a deep roasting tray. Stuff the lemons into the cavity of the bird and rub the butter over all the skin.

Season liberally with salt and pepper and wrap the bird with plenty of extra wide tin foil before transferring to the oven. Roast for 40 minutes per kg.
