Asian Turkey Meatballs with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce

We are having great luck with and the recipes there. We made these last night and loved them. I will be buying enough to double and freeze the leftovers next time I make them.

1/4 cup panko crumbs
1-1/4 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
1 egg
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
1 cloves garlic, minces
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shopped 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.

Mix ground turkey, panko, egg, salt, scallions, ginger, cilantro, 1 Tbsp soy sauce and 2 tsp sesame oil and mix with your hand until combined well (I used a rubber spatula to mix). 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 tsp of sesame oil in a bowl. Add scallions.

Transfer meatballs to a servings dish. Stir sauce, then drizzle meatballs with 1 Tbsp sauce.

Serve meatballs with remaining sauce, about 1 Tbsp per person.

We served it on brown rice.

Makes 12 meatball and serves 4. 7 PointsPlus per serving.
