  • ~~~~~ MEATBALLS:-------
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 scallions, very finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup very finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs (unseasoned)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 or 3 slices fresh ginger smashed with the side of a heavy knife


1. To make the meatballs: Heat the oven to 400.

2. Gently mix together the ingredients (hands are best for this), then form meatballs by rolling tablespoon-sized scoops between your palms.

3. Arrange on a lightly oiled or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, until well-browned and cooked through. Serve with toothpicks for dipping.

4. To make the dipping sauce: In a small pot, stir all the ingredients together over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves.

5. Simmer 3 or so minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens a bit.

6. Fish out the ginger and serve in small cups for dipping.
