Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger about a 3-inch frozen piece
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and minced or pressed in a garlic press

Optional for serving:

  • additional hoisin sauce
  • Sriracha
  • sesame seeds
  • sliced green onions


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix together until even. Use a small cookie scoop to divide the mixture (or make 2-teaspoon sized amounts.) Roll each meatball and place on the parchment lined pan, leaving about an inch between the meatballs so air can circulate around them in the oven. Bake the meatballs for 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatballs reach 165°F.

To serve immediately:

  • Drizzle with additional hoisin sauce and Sriracha and sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

To freeze:

  • Remove the meatballs from the parchment paper and lay out in a single layer on a pan or plate. Put the pan into the freezer until the meatballs are solid, then transfer them to a zipper top freezer bag for up to 3 months.
