How to Make Nigerian Smoked Turkey Stew Recipe

Nigerian Smoked Turkey Stew is a pepper based Stew recipe made with Smoked Turkey as its main protein.

I seldom cook Smoked Turkey as I find them a tad bit salty and I’m yet to find a way to rid them of the saltiness, I’ve even tried thoroughly washing them, then steaming before cooking, no luck. The saltiness does seep into the Stew after the first day to be honest, so it’s not like a permanent thing. I just try to “under salt” my Stew so the incorporated salt from the Turkey blends in nicely by the following day.

Anyway, I’d had a pack of Smoked Turkey wasting way in my freezer since August, last year, thought to put them to use this weekend as I had gotten tired of my usual meats and chicken. Well, though they were as salty as expected, they still tasted awesome.
