Ingredients

For the sauce:
  • 2 medium ripe Hass avocados (about 1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
For the turkey:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lightly packed lemon zest
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 (4-ounce) turkey cutlets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium ripe Hass avocado
  • 8 basil leaves for garnish

Directions

For the sauce: Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth; set aside until ready to use. If the sauce is too thick, add a little more water. (Can be made up to 1 day ahead and stored, covered tightly in a refrigerator until ready to use.)

For the turkey: Combine flour, zest, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag and mix thoroughly. Add half of cutlets and coat well. Remove, shaking off excess flour, and repeat with remaining cutlets.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When it shimmers, add 2 to 3 cutlets and cook until browned, about 3 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining cutlets.

To serve, place turkey on platter, top with sauce, and garnish with a few slices of avocado and torn basil leaves.
