You know Kikkoman for their soy sauce that either resides in your refrigerator or on the table at your favorite Asian restaurant.

Many people don't realize that Panko bread crumbs work well in both sweet and savory dishes.

One of my more common ways of using panko is as a topping to casseroles but this time I added it in with some Soy Ginger Turkey Meatballs. I wanted a more romantic meal for my Valentine's Day weekend.
(Makes 24 meatballs)
1 lb. lean, white meat ground turkey
1 cup bok choy, diced
1/2 cup scallions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tbsp orange juice
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1 cup panko
1 cup toasted sesame seeds
In a small bowl whisk orange juice, soy sauce, ginger and garlic together and set aside. Next, combine turkey and remainder items with spoon. When all mixed stir in sauce and add panko. Scoop out golf ball sized amounts and roll into ball. Place on baking sheet and put in freezer for 10 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. When meatballs are firm remove from freezer and roll in sesame seeds. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Make sure to check the inside the meatball to ensure the meat is cooked completely.
I used Kikkoman Lime Ponzu sauce for dipping! A perfect pairing!
