Lately I’ve been very lazy in the kitchen. For months on end I have been planning the week’s meals with militant precision and quite simply grew tired of it. All spontaneity has flown out of the window and I got seriously bored and not that excited about mealtimes. That’s it, I said, things are going to change!
Looking thoroughly at the fridge’s contents on a daily basis my creativity began to flow again and ideas came in abundance. Especially in this heat, wraps make a quick and delectable meal.
- 2 turkey fillets
- cajun spice
- 1 large mango or 2 smaller ones
- 4 tortilla wraps
- salad leaves
- Sprinkle the fillets with Cajun seasoning – as much as you prefer.
- Heat the butter in a large, heavy frying pan. Add the turkey and fry gently for 5 minutes. Turn it over and fry for about another 5 minutes or until cooked. Place on the chopping board and let it rest for a few minutes.
- Meanwhile, peel the mango and cut into long wedges.
- Thinly slice the turkey. All ingredients are now ready, you just need to put them all together.
- Warm the tortilla. In the centre smear 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise along where you are going to put the filling. Place the leaves on top of the mayonnaise, then the turkey and mango. Fold to make a wrap, slice the wrap in half and serve straight away. Repeat the process to make the other wraps.
- Take care when frying the meat. High heats cause the Cajun spice to blacken and basically burn the meat.
- If you’re lucky enough to own a barbecue, grill the meat on there.
- Chicken can be used instead of turkey.
