Hoisin Turkey Meatball Grinders with Spicy Tomato Relish

Start to finish: 30 minutes

Servings: 4



Ingredients:



1 egg

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

2 scallions, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

Zest of 1 lime

¼ cup hoisin

Salt

1 1/3 pounds ground turkey

¾ cup panko (Japanese-style) breadcrumbs

4 tablespoons butter, divided

2 plum tomatoes, diced

½ cup crème fraîche



1 teaspoon hot sauce

Four 6-inch sub rolls



Method:



Heat the oven to 425 F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the egg, cilantro, scallions, garlic, ginger, lime zest, hoisin and ½ tablespoon salt. Mix well. Add the turkey, then knead well with your hands until evenly mixed. Add the breadcrumbs and mix again. Form the mixture into about 20 balls.

In a large skillet over medium-high, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add half of the meatballs and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet, then repeat with the remaining butter and meatballs.

Bake the meatballs for 7 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through and a thermometer inserted at the center of a meatball reads 165 F.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix the tomatoes, crème fraîche, hot sauce and ½ teaspoon of salt. Spread a quarter of the mixture down the center of each sub roll. When the meatballs are done, arrange 5 in each roll. Serve immediately.
