Serves 3

For the dipping sauce:

0.5 oz. cilantro leaves

3 tbsp. coconut milk, well-stirred

1 tbsp. chopped jalapeño pepper

juice of 1 lime (reserve the zest for meatballs)

¼ tsp. sea salt

For the meatballs:

zest of 1 lime

1 large egg white

2 tsp. coconut aminos

1½ tsp. Thai red curry paste

¼ tsp. black pepper

1 lb.  ground turkey

1 oz. almond flour

1 tbsp. olive oil

How to Prepare

Place all the ingredients for the dipping sauce into a blender and blend until smooth, then set aside.

To make the meatballs, place the lime zest, egg white, coconut aminos, curry paste and black pepper into a large bowl and mix until smooth. Add the ground turkey and almond flour, stirring until well combined. Form the mixture into 24 even-sized meatballs, using about 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture for each.

Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Once hot, add the meatballs in a single layer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Don’t overcrowd the skillet, if necessary cook the meatballs in batches.

To serve, arrange the meatballs on a serving plate with the cilantro dipping sauce on the side.
