Are you hosting an Oscar Party this Sunday?  I’ve got the perfect Oscar Party Food idea!

Crispy Turkey Strips with Plum Sauce:

Serves 8 appetizer portions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray

1 lb. Turkey Tenderloin cut in strips (can substitute jumbo peeled, deveined shrimp or chicken breast)

½ cup panko bread crumbs

¼ tsp sea salt

fresh ground black pepper

¼ tsp Chinese Five Spice

¼ cup unsweetened coconut (opt)

1 egg white

Plum Sauce

1 can Oregon Fruit Purple Plums, drained reserving syrup

1 tsp corn starch

1 tablespoon hot mustard

¼ tsp ginger

Combine bread crumbs, salt, pepper, five spice and coconut if desired in a pie plate. Beat the egg white until frothy.  Salt and pepper the turkey strips, dip in egg white and then toss in bread crumb mixture.  Lay on cookie sheet and bake until golden. (about 15-20 minutes, less for shrimp).

While baking, make the plum sauce:

Pit the plums and set aside.  Heat the syrup with the corn starch in a small sauce pan until thickened and clear. Add the mustard and ginger and whisk together.  Put into a blender with the pitted plums and puree until smooth.  Return to the sauce pan to keep warm.  Serve the dipping sauce on the side in small ramekins.
