Preheat oven to 425. Rinse thawed bird with water. Pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the cavity with salt and pepper. Stuff with wedges of citrus and sprigs of rosemary, alternating until the cavity is full.
Prepare the roasting pan by laying a bed of thick slices of peeled onion. Place bird on top and cover with olive or grape seed oil and S&P.

*Let bird rest covered with aluminum foil for 30 minutes before carving.
Use a mesh colander to strain the juices from the pan into a sauce pan. Heat over medium and bring to a low bubble. Add 1-3 Tbls. butter and 1/4 cup of chicken stock. Bring back to a slow simmer for approximately 15 minutes. Heat thru and serve this with your sliced turkey.
