Asian Turkey Meatballs with a Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce

I found this recipe on Skinnytaste that looked too good to resist. We all (kids included) thought they tasted great and my husband couldn’t get enough of the dipping sauce. My kids especially liked that I served them with little forks inserted… it made them more fun to eat. I served these meatballs with a sweet and tangy slaw (recipe to post tomorrow) that was delicious.

Combine the soy sauce, lime juice, water, sesame oil, green onion, and honey together in a dish. Whisk until well combined; set aside.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.  Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine the ground turkey, egg, green onion, cilantro, ginger, garlic, panko, soy sauce, sesame oil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste together in a large bowl.  Gently mix the ingredients until well combined.

Shape 1/4 cup of mixture into a ball then place into the baking dish.  Repeat with the remaining meat mixture.

Place the meatballs into the oven and bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.  Serve immediately along with the dipping sauce.  Enjoy.
