Ingredients In Thai Shrimp Meatballs

  • 8 ounces shrimp (doesn’t matter what size since they will be blended)
  • 8 ounces ground pork
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Sauce

How To Make Thai Shrimp Meatballs

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add all the ingredients except the bread crumbs into a food processor. Process until all the ingredients are combined and then remove from the food processor into a bowl. Stir in the bread crumbs.
  3. Use a 1 1/2 tablespoon scooper to portion out the meatballs. Spray the scooper with cooking spray so that the filling doesn’t stick. The meatballs should be about the size of a golf ball.
  4. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes until firm and cooked through.
  5. Make the peanut sauce per the instructions, or grab a bottle of peanut sauce form the grocery store. Warm the sauce in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring, until warmed through.

Ways To Serve Shrimp Meatballs

These shrimp meatballs can be served both as dinner or for appetizers. For dinner, we like to serve the meatballs on a bed of rice and drizzle the peanut sauce all over the top. A garnish of sesame seeds and chopped scallions is also delicious.

If you want to serve these meatballs for appetizers, one option is to place them on a platter with the peanut sauce on the side for dipping. Alternately, you can coat the meatballs entirely in the peanut sauce, add sesame seeds and scallions to the top and serve with toothpicks.
