  • 1 lb ground turkey or chicken breast
  • 1/2 medium onion, grated + 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced carrot (I use shredded carrots and then chop)
  • 1/8 cup chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 2 large garlic cloves, grated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp + 1/4 tsp sriracha, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp rice vinegar, divided
  • 5 radishes, sliced very thin
  • 1/2 small cucumber, sliced very thin
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayo


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

  2. Using your hands, combine ground turkey, grated onion, diced onion, green onion, carrot, cilantro, garlic, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons sesame oil, fish sauce, 2 teaspoons sirracha, brown sugar, egg and panko in a medium bowl. Do not over mix.

  3. Use a small cookie scoop to form meat into 1-inch meatballs and line up on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until meatballs are golden brown and cooked through.

  4. While the meatballs cook, toss sliced cucumbers and radishes with 2 tablespoons rice vinegar in a small bowl. (The radishes may tint the cucumbers, if you don't want them to bleed at all, marinate them in separate bowls.)

  5. Also while the meatballs cook, mix remaining vinegar, sirracha, sesame oil and mayo in a small bowl. Set aside. 

  6. Skewer one slice of cucumber and one slice of radish onto cocktail skewer, followed by one meatball. Serve with mayo.
