Ingredients

For the meatballs 

  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • ¼ cup green onions
  • ½ tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

 

For the red curry sauce

Method

 

  1.  Add all of the meatball ingredients to a mixing bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined. Then, use a cookie dough scoop to form meatballs the size of golfballs (roughly 2 tablespoons per meatball). 
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the avocado oil and then cook the meatballs for 3-4 meatballs on each side until brown. Once the meatballs are brown, remove them from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Next, make the red curry sauce. Add the sliced peppers and onions to the skillet and saute for a few minutes until tender. Next, add the red curry paste, coconut milk, lime juice, coconut aminos, and fish sauce to the skillet and stir until well combined. 
  4. Add the meatballs back to the red curry sauce and bring them to a simmer. Let the meatballs simmer for 15-20 minutes and then finish the curry with fresh cilantro and green onion. Serve immediately and enjoy!
