This is a great recipe with plenty of flavor. Definitely company-worthy.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the water and asparagus in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook covered 5 minutes. Remove cover and cook 1 or 2 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside, but keep warm.

  • Melt the margarine in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the turkey cutlets 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until browned and no longer pink on the inside. Remove turkey from the pan and set aside.

  • Add the garlic and shrimp to the already heated skillet. Cook over medium-high heat 1 or 2 minutes, stirring constantly until the shrimp is heated through.

  • Prepare hollandaise sauce according to package directions.

  • Place each turkey cutlet on a plate. Top with the asparagus and shrimp. Spoon hollandaise sauce over all.

Cook's Note:

This is a great way to dress up leftovers, too. When using leftover turkey, simply reheat until heated through, and skip the cooking step. Crabmeat may be substituted for shrimp.

This was just incredible for a number of reasons. First it's super easy and takes mere minutes to prepare. Second it makes for a beautiful and impressive presentation. Third this is great for those watching their carbs. And last it's delicious! I used turkey cutlets but I think pounded flat chicken breasts would be better (hubby disagrees vigorously on this point preferring the turkey). I browned them for just a couple of minutes in a mixture of olive oil and butter and of course the minced garlic. I used fresh asparagus rather than frozen. Most important for the sauce I used part milk part water and added some fresh lemon juice which I think gave it a huge boost in flavor as well as a little tang. I had debated adding some fresh tarragon to make it a Bearnaise sauce (since I have it growing in my garden anyway) and really wish I would have. The good thing is that I can always try that next time since I WILL be making this again. Too easy and too good not to! I garnished this with a sprinkle of finely chopped parsley and the result was a dish worthy of serving to company. Read More

I thought this was okay it wasn't bad but it wasn't good enough to make very often. My 8 year old daughter loved it but I think she'd eat anything smothered in hollandaise sauce. I used fresh asparagus because I never use frozen. I also didn't add the shrimp in because I didn't have any. It was pretty easy to make. Read More

What a great idea! I made this as directed except I used 1 lb fresh asparagus for 4 people instead of the frozen. The finished producut looks especially impressinve! We were not that impressed with the texture of the turkey cutlets so next time I'll use boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded thin. Thanks for and easy impressive recipe! Read More

We had this for last night's dinner and it not only was picture perfect but also delicious. As suggested by a prior reviewer I used skinless boneless chicken breasts which had to be pounded a bit and fresh asparagus cooked in the microwave. The chicken had to be cooked more than 3 minutes on each side. I used Knoor's Hollandaise sauce made as directed on the packet but next time will add a little lemon juice. Easy to make and totally delish. Read More

We all enjoyed this dinner. I also steamed fresh asparagus like other reviewers. The sauce could have used some lemon juice and I will try it again with that addition. I also tried 1/4 t. dried tarragon which someone else suggested & enjoyed the flavor boost. This was an easy & enjoyable meal... thanks! Read More

This was really easy & everyone loved it! I used chicken breast pounded flat imitation crab meat instead of shrimp and made the hollandaise from the "Blender hollandaise sauce" recipe on this site. Read More

This was excellent and quick. I also used Knorr Hollandaise mix and added lemon juice and a little bit of tarragon. I used chicken breasts that I pounded out a bit. My fiance' thought it looked and tasted like something you would get in a restaurant. Not a morsel left over! Read More

I was a little bit skeptical about making this recipe. I was thinking turkey and shrimp in the SAME dish? How could that be? It actually turned out pretty good. Really fattening though but hey once in a while is okay right. Especially when I didn't have asparagus in the plate:S. I used chicken instead of turkey. DEFINITELY pound the chicken. I added a splash of lemon juice with the shrimp. Served it over linguinie pasta (mixed with butter again) and lemon juice. This recipe should not be made often. Read More
