Turkey Marinade (The Best Turkey EVER!!!!)

This marinade makes a wonderful, flavorful, moist turkey. The marinade can also be used for chicken or fish but I save it for this special time of year.

1/2 - 1. cup dijon mustard
1 cup EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
juice of 4=6 lemons
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
2 sprigs rosemary
2 sprigs thyme
oregano (optional)

Combine all ingredients with a whisk. Stuff bird (both ends) with juiced lemons and additional fresh rosemary and thyme.  Pour marinade over top and place some inside bird. Bake at 400 degrees covered for 1-1/2 hours and then remove cover and based every 30 minutes until brown and done.   (Cook until thermometer registers "poultry" which will be approximately another 3 hours depending on size of bird.

I have also made this in my counter top roaster that fits a 20 lb turkey so I keep my oven free for other side dishes.  (It just cooks it much faster!)
