Ingredients

Directions

  • FOR THE MEATBALLS:

    Mix the chicken or turkey, ginger, scallions, cilantro, fish sauce, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt and pepper until well combined. Wet hands, and form the meat into small balls.
  • Heat the peanut oil over in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook the meatballs until browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve with Peanut Sauce for dipping.
  • FOR THE PEANUT SAUCE:

    Slowly add hot water to the peanut butter, constantly stirring to incorporate. (The peanut butter may separate at first; don’t worry. Continue stirring, and the peanut butter will eventually smooth out.) When the sauce reaches the desired consistency, mix in the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and Sriracha.
