Thai Turkey Meatballs

I was on the hunt for an appetizer meatball recipe last weekend. I could have gone retro and simmered beef meatballs in the crockpot, but instead I tried this Asian-themed recipe. As the title suggests, I used ground turkey instead of beef, and decided on ‘Thai’ because they are simmered in coconut milk. I made a few other changes to the recipe, skipping the leek and the garnish, and using red chili paste in place of the fresh chile pepper. They weren’t spicy at all though, the most dominant flavor was ginger. Next time, I might make the meatballs as a main dish, and serve the sauce over some rice noodles.
