An awesome recipe that my talented daughter Christin created. It’s amazing!!

Meatballs
2 lbs ground turkey
1 cup zucchini, shredded & liquid squeezed out
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 medium red onion grated
3 garlic cloves, microplaned or finely chopped
1 tsp red curry paste (can buy in asian section in grocery store)
2 tbsp canned coconut milk
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
Olive oil, or coconut oil for pan

Sauce
Remainder of can of coconut milk
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp red curry paste
1 tsp fish sauce
2 tbsp ginger, finely chopped
1/8 tsp hot pepper chili flakes, or to taste
Juice of 1 lime, plus zest of half

Directions
Mix the turkey, zucchini, fish sauce, onion, garlic, red onion, coconut milk, and hot pepper flakes together in a bowl. (I found it easiest to use my hands.)

Roll the mixture into roughly 1 inch size balls (around the size of a ping pong ball) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a large skillet, put the olive oil or coconut oil and heat to medium. Begin placing the meat balls around the pan, be careful not to overcrowd. (I had to do a couple batches.) Brown on all sides.
In a separate dish, mix the ingredients for the sauce. When all the meatballs are finished browning, place them all back into the pan and pour the sauce. Let simmer on medium low for about 20 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Serves 4-6, or makes great leftovers!
