  • Yield: 6 Servings 1x


  • 8 oz. shrimp (can be the small ones, frozen or fresh)
  • 8 oz. ground pork
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 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

For the Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the meatballs except the panko into a food processor. Process until all the ingredients are completely combined, then stir in the panko bread crumbs.
  3. Using your hands (spray them with cooking spray first or slightly wet them) portion out a golfball sized meatball. You can also use a 1 1/2 T. scoop to portion them out.
  4. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 15 minutes until cooked through.
  5. While the meatballs are cooking make the peanut sauce. Add all the ingredients for the sauce into a small pot and heat over low heat. Whisk to combine the ingredients and just heat though.
  6. Serve the meatballs with the peanut sauce on the side for dipping, or you can toss the meatballs in the sauce and serve over rice.
