Fried Turkey Tail


3lb Turkey Tails (frozen is better)
Crushed Garlic Cloves (to taste)
Sesame Seed Oil
Deep Pot
Long Cooking Chopsticks
Spatter Screen


Chop up the frozen turkey tail into cubes (about 1/2" to 1"). Set into bowl to thaw. When thawed (but not warm!), put into deep cooking pot with about 1/8" sesame seed oil in the bottom. Begin cooking on medium-high heat, stirring continuously. As the oil begins to heat up, add garlic per your taste. Continue stirring so as to keep the turkey tails from sticking to the pan. Once oil is really hot, turn heat to medium. You can cover the pot, but that will cause condensation and yes, lots of spatter! Use the spatter screen for protection if need be. Continue stirring until all of the turkey tail is a deep golden brown; some will become a bit crunchy. When done, drain on a paper-towel covered plate to soak up the sesame oil. Serve with hot rice with salad
