"A sweet heat meatball recipe that packs a lot of flavour from Asian ingredients. This recipe make about 40 meatballs for appetizer size and if you want it as a main, I made 24 larger ones that gave me 4 per serving for the 6 of us. My photo is made with beef and next time I will be using pork...as I am not a fan of the texture of ground chicken."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F.

Step 2

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients for the meatballs, using your hands works best.

Step 3

Wetting your hands makes forming the mixture into bite-size meatballs easier as it will not stick; form meatballs about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Step 4

Place meatballs on a non-stick baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through; stirring meatballs once, halfway through cooking time, to brown sides.

Step 6

While meatballs are cooking, prepare glaze.

Step 7

In a 10 inch deep non-stick skillet, whisk together all glaze ingredients.

Step 8

Cook over medium-high heat until mixture is hot and bubbly and jam has melted.

Step 9

Add cooked meatballs and mix gently, ensuring every meatball is coated with sauce.

Step 10

Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds if using.

Step 11

Serve hot.
