Grilled Turkey with Honey

Turkey Grilled with Honey

I got this recipe from my sister, Artis. It’s not like she loves cooking and created her own recipe. She simply sent me a file where I can find hundreds of recipes. They are traditional recipes from Indonesia, my origin. She knows I love cooking and to the fact that I am away from my home country, she sent it to me which I appreciate so much.

Voila! here is the recipe.


  • 1 Turkey leg*
  • 1 sp of cooking oil


  • 2 sp of salty soy bean sauce 
  • 1 sp of sweet soy bean sauce
  • 1 sp of oyster sauce
  • 2 tea sp of grated ginger
  • 1/2 tea sp of sesame oil**
  • 3 sp of honey
  • 1/2 tea sp of powder pepper

How to cook

  • Sauce: mix all sauce’s ingredients
  • smear the turkey with the sauce
  • marinate it for one hour
  • smear the dish with cooking oil. Put in the turkey including all the sauce
  • Grilled for 1 hours***
  • Serve while warm

Serving: for 2 people

Side dishes:

  • I find french fries is a good match for turkey grilled with honey but you can also have steam rice. I think steam rice is the best match but only if I can have sambal goreng terasi (red: special spicy sauce from Indonesia) which is not easy to find the ingredients here


* Originally the recipe is for one whole chicken. Since there are only turkey available in the fridge at that time and only 2 people eating so I only use 1 turkey leg. Quite representative!

** I don’t have ang ciu and red small onion and don’t how to get them here yet, so I skip both.

*** Follow the instruction from your griller, for mine they suggest me to put in the second position with 140 degree heat.

    oh ya from the recipe we did not feel the honey so strong. Would be better to add more honey.

  3. it’s too easy for you to make me happy , because i like all the sweet taste of food , so this one was just for me , with the honey flavor it was so good .
    But a little bit too long to grill, even when you smell the nice flavor in the kitchen since almost half a hour !!!!
