My hubby loves cilantro. In fact, the other day after I made a cilantro cream sauce, I walked past him and he complimented me on my perfume. This silly man must have forgot I don't wear perfume... but what he was smelling was cilantro!
Tonight I wanted something light and citrusy so I made Cilantro Turkey meatballs with Lemon Couscous. I basically followed my usual Cilantro Turkey Burger recipe and shaped into small meatballs, which I sauteed until nicely browned. Here's my recipe for Cilantro Turkey Meatballs:
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 half large red onion
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt olive oil
In a bowl, grate onion. This allows it to add moisture to the turkey and even cooking.
To the grated onion, add turkey, cilantro & spices.
Combine thoroughly without over handling.
Shape into meatballs, (walnut sized).
Heat up saute pan.
Add a little oil and cook the meatballs until nicely browned.
