I made these meatballs the other night for dinner when I was wondering what to do with some ground turkey I bought. In this recipe ground turkey is combined with garlic, green onions, ginger, hot oil and sesame oil. The mixture is rolled into bite size meatballs, browned and then simmered in a teriyaki sauce.
Combine first nine ingredients together in a bowl. Mix well. Form into about 20 meatballs.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 6 minutes, they will finish cooking in the sauce. Depending on the size of your pan you made need to do this in batches.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Once the meatballs have browned, return all of them to the pan. Pour sauce over and gently stir to coat. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
I served these over jasmine rice and topped with a little green onion, but now that I am thinking about it, you can stick them with toothpicks and they might also be a good appetizer. Enjoy!
