This recipe highlights Asian flavors, but Greek-inspired meatballs are also delicious. Mix together 1/2 lb. ground lamb; 1 garlic clove, minced; 1 Tbs. chopped fresh oregano; and 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese. To make the sauce, in a blender, combine 1/4 cup each fresh mint and parsley, 1 garlic clove, 1/4 cup walnuts, 1 anchovy fillet and 1/2 cup olive oil; process until smooth.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. Asian fish sauce
  • 1 Tbs. minced lemongrass, white portion only
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 14 small lettuce leaves
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a bowl, combine the chicken, soy sauce, fish sauce, lemongrass, cilantro, ginger and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Roll the meat mixture into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Heat a large fry pan over medium heat. Pour in the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the meatballs and panfry, turning them to brown evenly on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Drain on paper towels. Return the meatballs to the baking sheet and bake until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Line a platter with the lettuce leaves and arrange the warm meatballs on top. Garnish with the green onions and lime wedges and serve immediately. Makes 14 meatballs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would make these again! I was thrilled with the taste of these meatballs! I followed the recipe exactly, but when I placed the meatballs on the baking sheet, they seemed a bit mushy. Checking the previous customer reviews of this recipe, I then added some unseasoned fresh bread crumbs to the outside of each meatball. Next time, I will add some fresh unseasoned bread crumbs to the mix before forming the balls. Served on butter lettuce and we ate them by wrapping them in lettuce. Really good!
