Shaken, Not Soaked
The case for dry brining is straightforward: half the work, easily as good a result as soaking your bird in a wet brine. But we’d like to make it even easier for you this Thanksgiving. MÁGICO Sofrito Spice is a pre-mixed shaker of premium sea salt and all of the same bold sabor used to season our beans and grains—just in dry form. Here are the basics for a surefire dry brine.
-Rinse turkey inside and out and dry thoroughly.
-Liberally season with MÁGICO Sofrito Spice, inside and out. Don’t be shy.
-Loosely cover the seasoned turkey in foil and refrigerate overnight.
-Remove from the fridge an hour or two before roasting.
-Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
-Roast. We find 13 minutes a pound at 350 degrees works well.
-Let rest for longer than you think.
-Carve and enjoy.
