Cajun Fried Turkey

One 15 lb turkey.
2 cups of Italian dressing.
1 cup of mixed seasoning (try for example onion powder, cayenne, black pepper and garlic powder).
1 stick of butter.
Peanut oil.

Instructions for Cajun Fried Turkey:

The night before the turkey is to be cooked, melt the butter and add the dressing to it.

Add the seasoning to the mixture.

Place this mixture into an injector needle.

Insert the needle all the way into the turkey and squeeze.

Inject the turkey all over until all the mixture is used.

Place the injected turkey into a bag and keep in the the refrigerator overnight.

The next day, heat the oil to about 375°F (190°C).

Place the turkey into the heated oil. This should drop the temperature to around 300°F to 350°F. Do not allow it to rise to above 350°F (175°C).

Cook the turkey, uncovered, for about 3 minutes per pound (so around 45 mins for a 15 pound turkey).

Serve as desired.
