1 cup olive oil 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup orange juice 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1 teaspoon orange zest 1/2 cup parsley leaves finely chopped 1/4 cup chives thinly sliced 1/4 cup sage leaves finely chopped 2 tablespoons rosemary leaves finely chopped 1/4 cup thyme leaves chopped 1 tablespoon garlic minced 2 teaspoons smoked paprika 1 teaspoon sweet paprika 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon black pepper
Place all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk until well combined. Pour the marinade over a whole thawed turkey. Rub the marinade to coat all over the outside, then loosen the skin and rub some of the marinade under the skin. Let the turkey sit in the marinade for 12-24 hours. Scrape any large pieces of herbs and garlic off the marinated turkey so that they won't burn when cooked. Roast, smoke or grill the turkey as desired, then serve and enjoy.
