  • 1 lb 85/15 ground turkey
  • ¼ onion grated or finely minced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons mint sprigs chopped
  • ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley or cilantro chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peach jam melted


  • Lightly oil the grates of grill or grill pan and preheat it to medium-high.
  • In a food processor combine ground turkey, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, smoked paprika, mint, salt, and pepper, parsley in a food processor and blend until everything is combined.
  • Take about 2 tablespoons of the mix and mold into approximately cylinders or sausage shapes. Skewer the meat, squeezing it to mold it to the skewer. Thread peach slice followed by kefta, repeat once more and end with a peach slice if space permits. Secure kefta by pressing them tightly in place.

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling.
If using lean meat add some olive oil to ground turkey to keep moist.
Keep a bowl of what nearby to reduce the stickiness and help you mold the kefta.
