Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1-1/4 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
    1/4 cup panko crumbs
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 scallions, chopped
    1 tbsp ginger, minced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
    2 tsp sesame oil

    Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce:
    4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
    2 tsp sesame oil
    2 tbsp fresh lime juice
    2 tbsp water
    1 tbsp chopped fresh scallion



Tips

I prefer the 93% lean turkey here because I find the 99% fat free comes out dry but completely up to you what you want to use. Serve this over udon noodles or fried brown rice.

For a fun appetizer, make them half the size and serve them with toothpicks. Super easy to make in less than 30 minutes.


Directions

Preheat oven to 500░F.

Mix ground turkey, panko, egg, salt, scallions, garlic, ginger, cilantro, soy sauce, oil and mix with your hands until combined well. Shape 1/4 cup meat mixture into a ball and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon of dipping sauce.

Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Transfer meatballs to a serving dish. Stir sauce, then drizzle meatballs with 1 tablespoon dipping sauce.

Serve meatballs with remaining sauce, about 1 tbsp per person. Chances are you won't use all the dipping sauce.

Serving Size:áMakes 12 meatballs
