Asian Meatballs

Last weekend, we had some friends over to make homemade sushi. We basically did the same thing as last time, except we had a few additional ingredients for the rolls (smoked salmon, zucchini, etc). I wanted something else to serve besides sushi and edamame and when I saw this asian meatball recipe on Alice and the Mock Turtle, I thought it sounded perfect! I halved her recipe, and made 24 meatballs. These were the perfect accompaniment to our meal, especially when dipped in a "spicy eggplant sauce" we purchased at the asian grocery store.
