The recipe for turkey jerky is very simple. Wash the filters and dry with a paper towel. Mix salt with coarsely ground black pepper.

Turkey fillet in salt and pepper

Sprinkle a layer of salt and pepper mixture on the bottom of the container. Put the fillets on top and sprinkle with the mixture on all sides. If you are salting several fillets in the same bowl, there should also be a mixture of salt and pepper between them. Fillets should not touch each other. Top up with the remaining mixture. The fillet must be covered completely.

Turkey fillet with salt and pepper

Make sure the meat is nowhere to be seen under the layer of salt and pepper. Place the prepared fillet in the refrigerator for a day. Turkey fillet is not the same in structure as beef or pork, so a day is enough for it to be salted.
