1/2 tsp (2 mL) each coarse salt and fresh cracked pepper
4 oz (113 g) crumbled goat cheese
4 pieces Ontario turkey scallopini
In large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add shallots and cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in spinach, cover and cook until spinach is tender and wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Let cool completely. Gently stir in goat cheese.
Working with one piece of turkey at a time, lay the turkey onto a sheet. Pound gently with the back of a pan to even the piece if necessary. Spread about 1/4 of the filling down the center of each piece. Use the plastic wrap to wrap the turkey tightly around the filling, forming a cylinder, making sure there are no tears in the plastic wrap. Roll up the ends to seal. Repeat with remaining turkey and filling.
Set a large pot of water over medium high heat and bring to a simmer. Place the plastic wrapped pieces of turkey into the water and poach for 15 minutes. Remove each cylinder with tongs and rest for 5 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and slice. Serve warm or cold.
