Bring Some Spice to the Table With a Cajun Fried Turkey this Holiday Season

By

A Cajun Fried Turkey shouldn't just be for special occasions -- but they are delicious at Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season. Jazz up your holidays with a spicy Cajun Fried Turkey. While most locations only provide the fried birds through December, Nate's will fry one up anytime during the year. Now that's a delicious idea! 

I've enjoyed Cajun turkeys from Nate's, the Cajun Fried Turkey Co, and Dickey's. They are a spicy and delicious way to enjoy the holidays. Kick your Thanksgiving meal up a notching by serving some Cajun Fried Turkey this holiday season. Do you really want to buy 100 gallons of peanut oil and try this yourself? I suggest you leave it to the professionals. You just may save yourself a trip to the Emergency Room.

According to an email from Nate, "I fried the first cajun turkeys commercially in the metroplex in 1991 and we have made many people happy with them." That's pretty cool. I've enjoyed Nate's turkeys over the past decade and they are delicious! Nate's has one of the best birds I've ever tasted.

This Cajun-fried treat is not just for the holidays; Nates will fry a turkey especially for you anytime during the year. Plan to call the day before you need a fried turkey. They need 24 hours notice to prepare one. In 2012, you can order your Thanksgiving Turkey starting November 1.

Popeyes Cajun Style Turkeys are available through December or as long as supplies last. Popeyes Canjun Fried Turkeys weigh approximately 10 to 12 pounds, are infused with a unique blend of Louisiana seasonings then flash-fried, creating a unique, crispy coating. Roasting finishes out the process and leaves the turkey crispy on the outside while remaining succulent and flavorful on the inside. A Popeye's Fried Turkey is $34.99 plus tax and they are open Thanksgiving Day. You pay for the turkey when you pick it up.
