  Turkey 15 Pound
For marinade
  Soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Chinese five spice 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Minced garlic 1 Teaspoon
For stuffing
  Dried black mushrooms 8
  Dried shrimp 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Chinese sausages 4 Ounce, thinly sliced (2 Pieces, 2 Ounces Each)
  Green onions with tops 3 , thinly sliced
  Canned water chestnuts 8 Ounce, coarsely chopped (1 Can)
  Chopped cilantro 2 Tablespoon (Chinese Parsley)
  Oyster sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Pepper white 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cooked glutinous rice/Cooked medium-grain rice 3 Cup (48 tbs)

1. Remove the giblets from the turkey; reserve them for other uses. Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat it dry with paper towels. Combine the marinade ingredients in a small bowl and rub them over the skin of the turkey. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or as long as overnight.
2. Soak the mushrooms and dried shrimp separately in warm water to cover for 30 minutes; drain. Cut offand discard the mushroom stems and thinly slice the caps. Leave the shrimp whole.
3. Place a wok or wide frying pan over high heat until hot. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides. Add the sausage, shrimp, and garlic and stir-fry until the sausage is slightly crisp, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, green onions, water chestnuts, and cilantro; cook for 1 minute. Stir in the oyster sauce, soy sauce, and pepper. Add the rice, mix well, and remove from the heat.
4. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spoon the stuffing into the turkey cavity; close it with trussing needles or sew it closed. Place the turkey on a rack in a foil-lined baking pan. Bake until the juices run clear when a thigh is pierced, about 3 hours. (Or, insert a meat thermometer in the center of one of the inside thigh muscles, being careful that the tip does not touch bone. Bake until the thermometer registers 180° to 185°.) During the last half of the roasting time, baste the turkey occasionally with pan juices.
