To quench a Chinese take-out craving, just add Braggs.

Asian Turkey Meatball with Lime Sesame Dipping Sauce (serves 4)
Inspired by a recipe found here.

I stumbled upon this gem of a recipe exactly when I needed it– while I was craving some not-so-good-for-you Chinese take-out. I never heard of an Asian meatball before. Let me tell you, it’s delicious. The meatballs don’t really need any extra sauce. I would recommend cutting the sauce recipe in half unless you’d like a lot of extras. The meatballs themselves are moist, tender, and full of flavor.


  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 1-1/4 lbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 2 tsp sesame oil

For the Dipping Sauce:

  • 4 tbsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 chopped fresh scallion
Preheat oven to 500°F. Mix ground turkey, panko, egg, salt, scallions, ginger, cilantro, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and 2 tsp oil and mix with your hands until combined well. Shape 1/4 cup meat mixture into a ball and transfer to a baking dish. Repeat with remaining mixture. Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.For the dipping sauce mix together lime juice, water, soy sauce, and remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in a bowl. Add scallions. Serve meatballs over brown rice. Stir sauce, then drizzle meatballs with 1 tablespoon sauce. Serve with remaining sauce.::Ashley
