Injection Recipe

Turkey marinade injection


This is an old recipe I have had for injecting a turkey for deep frying; I think I got it from a friend at work. I have never deep fried a turkey but I used the recipe for smoking some turkey breasts & thought it was extra good.


1 bottle of liquid onion

1 bottle of liquid garlic

2 TBS hot sauce

1 TBS kosher salt

1 TBS Zatarains liquid shrimp & crab boil

1 cup water


Mix all the above, bring to a boil & cook about 10 min. Let cool & use to inject a turkey. Season turkey with your favorite Cajun seasoning. Fry turkey in 350 deg oil 4 minutes per pound.


I used this for a pork loin, only used 1 tsp of salt & ½ tsp hot sauce. Really good.


Note: recipe said enough for two turkeys. The liquid onion & garlic I think are 1 fluid oz. bottles found in the spice department. If you can’t find the liquid onion & garlic use garlic paste & onion powder.
