  • Squeeze lime juice over turkey and rub with spice blend. Let marinate for about 1 hour.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Reduce grill temperature to medium. Remove turkey from marinade, reserve any excess for basting. Sear turkey breast on the preheated grill, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Turn 1/2 of the grill burners off. Roast breast on the grill for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn turkey over and baste with reserved marinade; cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 15 to 20 minutes more. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
