Thai Meatballs

First, props to Kate Masson for the recipe. She made me these meatballs for my birthday dinner this past August, and I was struck by the rich flavour. This is a very exotic tasting dish. If you like peanut sauce, and you like cilantro, you will LOVE this. If you are less adventurous in your culinary exploration, it may not be to your taste. It does qualify as easy, though, Ness.

1 1/2 ground chicken
1/4 cup hoisin suace
1/4 cup bread crumbs
3 T green onions
1 T cilantro
1 egg
3 cloves garlic
1 t fresh ginger
1 t sesame oil
salt and pepper

1 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
2 T soya sauce
2 T peanut butter
2 T cilantro
1 T ginger
1 t lemon zest

1.Mix all meatball ingredients. Roll into 1'' balls. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
2. Mix all sauce ingredients in a sauce pot and simmer gently, stirring regularily, for 10-15 minutes.
Serve over basmati rice.
