Step 1
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together.
Step 2
For a turkey, salt first and bake until it is halfway done. For the last half of the cook time, brush the turkey generously with the marinade (cook uncovered). 
Step 3
For a chicken, put the marinade on at the beginning, since it takes much less time to cook.
1/3 cup freshly ground black pepper
2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup drained ginger purée (or grated ginger)
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/4 cup rosemary, finely chopped
