Easy Asian Tilapia Meatballs With Soba Noodles
Ok, so these don't really have meat in them and I should probably call this post Easy Asian Fishballs --- but that sounds gross soooo this my Tilapia meatball recipe :) Tilapia is such a healthy and inexpensive fish that I've been wanting to try it in new ways. Tonight I decided to mix our tilapia filets with a bit of bread and seasoning kind of like I make my turkey meatballs but subbing in some asian ingredients. They turned out great and only took 10 minutes to bake. I threw them on some soba noodles with a little soy sauce and rice vinegar and topped it all with a bit of kimchi. It was a great meal! Try them out by themselves or on top of some soba.
