3 lbs. turtle steak
¼ cup of olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
clove of garlic
dash of white pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Clean and rinse the turtle well. Cut into steaks ½ to ¾-inch in thickness. Squeeze the lime juice into a 9-12" baking dish. Rub the cut lime into the steak, "you should get the oil of the peel into the steak". Rub the steaks with cut garlic clove, lightly sprinkle with salt and place them into the lime juice, refridgerate for 1 hour.
Remove from lime juice, brush with lots of olive oil, sprinkle with white pepper and garlic powder, add more salt if necessary. BBQ over hot coals until the steaks are tender.
A fresh green salad, corn fritters or hush puppies along with some herb rice are excellent compliments for BBQ turtle. ENJOY!!!
