For the turkey legs à l’orange, salt and pepper the legs on both sides.

Crush coriander seeds, cinnamon and cumin with a mortar and rub the turkey legs with it.

Heat oil in a pan and sear the turkey legs on both sides for about 5 minutes. Deglaze with a dash of sweet wine. Stir the butter into the white wine, pour in the orange juice and add the star anise.Simmer the turkey legs in the orange sauce for about 45 minutes until cooked. While cooking, baste the turkey legs often with the orange sauce to keep them nice and juicy. If there is not enough liquid in the pot, top up with orange juice.

The turkey legs à l’orange go very well with sweet potato gnocchi.
