  • Step 1

    Mix the turkey with the rest of the marinade ingredients. Allow to marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, mix the glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a simmer and whisk to combine. Simmer about 10 minutes and remove from heat.
  • Step 3

    Build the skewers by placing one square of red pepper onto the skewer, followed by 2 squares of turkey, pressing the skewer into the center of the turkey squares and pushing them right up close to the pepper like the pages of a book. Repeat 3 times, and bookend with a 5th pepper.
  • Step 4

    Grill the turkey on high heat on all four sides, about 4 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through.
  • Step 5

    Line the skewers on a platter and drizzle with the glaze. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds and chopped basil before serving.
