Ingredients
  1. 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium Tamari or Soy Sauce
  2. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  3. 2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger root, preferably grated with a rasp-style grater
  4. 1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek sauce (see *ingredient note) or 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. 1 teaspoon sugar
  6. 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  7. 2 scallions, minced plus sliced scallion greens for garnish, divided
  8. 1/2 cup drained, finely chopped water chestnuts
  9. 1 pound lean ground turkey
  10. 1/4 cup purchased Hoisin Sauce (see *ingredient note)
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves (coriander)
  12. 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  13. Black and/or white sesame seeds, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk Tamari or soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, sambal or crushed red pepper and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in cornstarch until smooth. Stir in 2 minced scallions and water chestnuts. Stir in turkey until completely combined.
  3. Drop turkey mixture by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet, gently re-shaping into ball shapes if necessary. Lightly coat the balls with cooking spray and transfer to the oven. Bake until the meat is cooked through, 15 to 17 minutes.
