Method

1. Place the turkey stir fry strips in a shallow dish. Blend the Chinese Five Spice powder with the honey, soy sauce and sherry, pour over the turkey and stir lightly. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally during marinating.

2. Drain the turkey, reserving the marinade. Heat a wok or a large pan and pour in the sunflower oil. Add the turkey stir fry strips and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the carrots and red pepper strips and continue to stir fry for 3 more minutes before stirring in the marinade.

3. Sprinkle in the spring onions and cashew nuts and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until the turkey is tender. Blend the cornflour with 1 tablespoon of water, add to the wok or pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the sesame oil, give a final stir and serve the turkey stir fry with freshly cooked rice.
