Asian Style Turkey Meatballs & Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce
Wow, this was delicious. It's been a while since something really blew my socks off, but this meal was just so flavorful and HEALTHY! You can't beat that.
I highly recommend trying this soon. I will say that this didn't make as much food as I thought it would. I was hoping to have leftovers for lunch today, but we um....ate them all. Oops!
I would think this would work with chicken as well, but I used turkey like the recipe said. I will also use this dipping sauce for other things, such as my steamed dumplings! Enjoy! Ingredients:
Dipping Sauce: 4 tbsp soy sauce 2 tbsp water 2 tbsp lime juice 2 tsp sesame oil 1/4-1/2 tsp honey, to taste 1 scallion, chopped Meatballs: 1 lb ground turkey 1 egg 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped 2 tbsp scallion, finely chopped 1 tbsp ginger, minced 1 clove of garlic, minced 1/4 cup of panko crumbs 1 tbsp soy sauce 2 tsp sesame oil Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste Directions:
Combine the soy sauce, lime juice, water,sesame oil, green onion, and honey together in a dish. Whisk until well combined; set aside. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Combine the ground turkey, egg, green onion, cilantro, ginger, garlic, panko, soy sauce, sesame oil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste together in a large bowl. Gently mix the ingredients until well combined. Shape 1/4 cup of mixture into a ball then place into the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining meat mixture. Place the meatballs into the oven and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately along with the dipping sauce. Enjoy.
