This dish has an amazing and surprising flavour worthy of a dinner party. The turkey breast needs to marinated for up to 24 hours, however, I have also marinated for 6 hours with good results. The flavour becomes more pronounced the longer you marinate.

Definitely spicy but just the way I like it! Has a real good flavor overall- not just heat. Light and healthy- I served medallions of this over an arugula salad. I do suggest double bagging if using ziplocks to marinate as the pungency of the marinade does get through. A keeper! Thanks for sharing~

This made for a tasty and easy mid week dinner...marinated in the morning-devoured in the evening. I ended up using chicken breast as turkey breast were nowhere to be found (typical!),but followed everything else to the letter. Yum!

This was a Thai flavor for sure. We enjoyed it hot off the grill but as it cooled the fish sauce started to come out more. I would probably reduce the fish sauce since we don't like fish... but that's our own problem, not a problem with the recipe.
