Asian Turkey Meatballs With Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce

My boyfriend introduced (and cooked) this dish and I'm in love with it. !

Recipe was from this link: ( image from this link )

Ingredients you need:
  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 1-1/4 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
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
Preheat oven to 500°F.

Mix ground turkey, panko, egg, salt, scallions, ginger, cilantro, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and 2 tsp oil and mix with your hands until combined well. Shape 1/4 cup meat mixture into a ball and transfer to a baking dish. Repeat with remaining mixture. Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.

For the dipping sauce mix together lime juice, water, soy sauce, and remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in a bowl. Add scallions.

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

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

Makes 12 meatballs.

here you go - these were how our final meat balls looked like! Doesn't it look delicious? 

It's a very healthy meal and we paired it with some brown rice. And do follow the recipe and try out the dipping sauce - it works very well with the dish. 

Enjoy the recipe! 

Random Rant  : Being in Singapore, trying to find turkey meat is really hard! But for those of you keen, look for it at the butcher in chip bee gardens.
