Asian Turkey Meatballs With Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce

Every year Hubby and I love to find a handful
 of new recipes that we like to add into our "regulars".

I decided to feature our favorite recipe each week.

Last week was the Asian Turkey Meatballs
with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce.

This recipe is from Skinnytaste.com,
 I followed it exactly, and loved it.

Here it is, right from Skinny Taste.

Calories: 229.1 • Fat: 11.1 g • Carbs: 8.5 g • Protein: 24.3 g
Meatballs
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 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
