Turkey breast steaks with a peanut and chilli rub

This is the type of recipe most people enjoy - it smacks of the current food trend floating about -...insert appropriate cuisine...food made easy, 30 minute meals, quick tasty and delicious. Yes, we all lead busy lives, but I know for one, I love to spend hours in the kitchen, if time permits, getting stuck into some crazy recipe I pulled from some cook book. I guess my latest recipe came from watching Lorraine Pascale new BBC1 TV show - fast, fresh and delicious - yes, it's those darn culinary adjectives again! I often get home late and this recipe does live up to being tasty in the face of haste and late working hours - give it  a try and like this post, it's a quick one. Enjoy with plantain - of course.

Ingredients

300g lean turkey steaks or chicken steaks
1 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
A handful of dry roasted peanuts

Prep:

1) Using a pestle and mortar, grind the peanuts into a relatively fine powder.
2) Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly and cover the turkey breast with the mixture.
3) Grill the steaks on a medium setting for about 10 minutes and serve with roasted plantain and a green salad.
