How to Choose, Cook, and Enjoy Your Roasted Turkey during Holidays?

The holiday season is upon us, bringing with it the joy of festive gatherings and delicious feasts. At Tariq Halal Meats, we understand the importance of a memorable holiday meal, and that's why we're here to guide you in choosing, cooking, and savouring the perfect halal turkey for your celebrations.

Choosing the Right Halal Turkey

The foundation of any great holiday meal is the main course and a succulent halal turkey from Tariq Halal Meats is sure to steal the spotlight. Our commitment to quality ensures that you have two excellent options to choose from - the Christmas Pre-Order Fresh Tariq Halal Turkey and the convenient Frozen Halal Whole Turkey.

For smaller gatherings, consider the halal turkey crown, a choice that combines ease of preparation with the same premium quality. If you're planning a grand feast, the halal whole turkey is your go-to option, offering a generous serving of tender, juicy meat that will have your guests asking for seconds.

Cooking up a Flavourful Masterpiece

Now, let's embark on the culinary journey of preparing a mouthwatering halal turkey roast. This recipe not only showcases the versatility of our halal turkey but also adds a touch of excitement to your festive table. 


  • 1 Tariq Halal Whole Turkey
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons halal turkey bacon bits
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste 


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C).
  • Thoroughly wash and pat dry the Tariq Halal Whole Turkey, ensuring it's ready for the flavour infusion.
  • In a small bowl, create a flavour-packed rub by mixing olive oil, halal turkey bacon bits, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  • Gently rub the mixture over the entire surface of the turkey, ensuring each inch is evenly coated for maximum flavour.
  • Place the prepared turkey in a roasting pan, positioning it breast side up to promote even cooking.
  • Roast in the preheated oven, allowing approximately 15 minutes per pound, or until the internal temperature reaches a safe 165°F (74°C).
  • Patience is key – let the turkey rest for at least 20 minutes before carving. This ensures that the juices redistribute, resulting in a succulent and tender bite.

As you carve into your perfectly roasted halal turkey, the kitchen will be filled with enticing aromas, creating an ambiance of warmth and celebration. The infusion of halal turkey bacon bits adds a subtle smokiness, while the aromatic blend of thyme and rosemary enhances the overall richness of the dish.
