1/4 c. lime juice

1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. honey

1/4 tsp. ground coriander

2 tsp. ground cumin

1 lb. turkey tenderloin

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 large green pepper, cut into thin strips

1 medium red onion, cut into thin slices

4 flour tortillas, 10-in diameter

lime wedges

sour cream and salsa (optional)


For the marinade:
In a large bowl combine lime juice, vinegar, garlic, honey, coriander and cumin. 

Cut the tenderloins lengthwise into 1/8-in. strips and add to the marinade.  Let stand for 10 minutes.

For preparing the fajitas:
Drain turkey and discard marinade.  Preheat a 10-in. nonstick omelette or fry pan over medium heat until the rim of the pan is hot to the touch. 

Add 1 Tbsp. oil to the pan and allow to heat for a minute.  Add the pepper and onion and sauté until the onions begins to brown.  Remove from the pan and reserve. 

Add another Tbsp. of oil and heat for a moment.  Add the turkey and sauté until completely cooked, about 4 minutes.  Transfer the turkey to the container with the vegetables.

For serving:
Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm them in a 300°F/150°C oven for about 5 minutes. 

Divide the turkey and vegetables among the warm tortillas.  Season with lime, top with sour cream and salsa.
