Turkey with Lime Butter Sauce Recipe

Turkey with Lime Butter Sauce Recipe

When I’m in Florida, I buy Key limes for the butter sauce, but any fresh limes work just fine. If I'm using leftover turkey, I brown the meat a little so the sauce picks up the flavor. —Patricia Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania
