Italian Herb Turkey Injection Marinade.

The original recipe post for this recipe is here but I have copied it verbatim below.  There was no picture of any marinade associated with the post so I have “created” a post for it so I can pin it. PS. When you inject flavor into the meat, think 40 injections and not 4.

Lots of injection marinades are built around a Cajun flavor. This one is mild in heat, but rich in herb flavors. Make sure that the herbs you use are well ground so that they will fit through your injection needle.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Makes 1 1/2 cups


  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasonings
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


Make sure that your Italian Seasoning is finely ground. If you need to run it through a spice grinder or mortal and pestle. Combine all ingredients and mix well. This marinade will settle so you need to give it a stir every time you reload the needle.
