Yields 20 meatballs

Ingredients

The meatballs

  • 1 lb. skinless salmon, cut into chunks
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • ½ tsp 5-spice powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp whole wheat panko breadcrumbs*
  • 2 tbsp minced flat-leaf parsley

The sauce

Directions

The meatballs:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place the salmon in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, scraping down the sides as necessary. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. To the salmon, add the garlic, ginger, 5-spice powder, salt, egg white, breadcrumbs and parsley.
  4. Using a rounded 1 tablespoon portion of the salmon mixture, form meatballs by rolling between the palms of your hands. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet, spacing evenly.
  5. Bake the meatballs for 5 minutes. Brush the meatballs with half of the sauce. Bake until the meatballs are firm to the touch cooked through, an additional 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Brush with the remaining half of the sauce. Serve.

The sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, rice vinegar and garlic powder. Transfer half of the sauce to a separate bowl.
