super bowl sunday is only weeks away and everyone knows that football fans love hot spicy meatballs for their bowl parties. here is a great recipe that i found online and used frozen turkey meatballs to make the dish a bit more health conscious. if you have a favorite meatball recipe, start with that and bake your meatballs first until done. during their baking time, whisk together this sauce recipe and use it as a dip for the meatballs on the side or do as i did, and pour the sauce over the meatballs during the last 10 minutes of baking time.
this technique warms the sauce for serving and presentation. i garnished them with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
here is the recipe for the asian sauce: mix the following ingredients together in a small bowl and use as directed in the above recipe.
2/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
minced garlic to taste
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 teaspoon ground ginger.
these spicy asian meatballs could also be served with rice as a light supper.
