Desserts

Perfectly Roasted Turkey with Himalayan Salt Crust

Serves 4

One
12- to 14-pound turkey, giblets removed
Kitchen twine
3
carrots, roughly chopped
1
stalk celery, roughly chopped
2
medium yellow onions, cut into wedges
6
tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, or olive oil
3/4 
teaspoon Himalayan salt, ground
Freshly ground black pepper

 

Heat oven to 425° F.

Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat it dry with paper towels. Place the wings underneath the body.

Tie the drumsticks together using kitchen string.

Place the carrots, celery, and onions in a metal roasting pan. Transfer the turkey to a wire rack and place it on top of the vegetables.

Drizzle the skin with the butter or oil and, using your fingers, spread it evenly. Season with the salt and pepper.

Roast the turkey, uncovered, until browned, 30 to 45 minutes. Add 1 cup cold water to pan. Cover the turkey loosely with foil. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F. Roast until a thermometer inserted in a thigh registers 180° F, about 2 hours total. Let the turkey rest for at least 30 minutes before carving.
