These pork and shrimp meatballs are a low carb LIFESAVER!
Ground pork and minced shrimp combine to make a tasty appetizer and are fantastic in soup!
Start with shrimp
Start with shrimp and chop them by hand, a food processor will turn them to mush…and you don’t want that. Chop some scallions and mix this with ground pork, and egg white, and spices for an easy treat.
Form the pork and shrimp meatballs
Form the meatballs with wet hands and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper to keep them from sticking. Roast the meatballs until they a browned and cooked through, then serve as an appetizer or in soup.
I love these tasty pork and shrimp meatballs in my cabbage soup (GET THE CABBAGE SOUP RECIPE HERE) or as a tasty party appetizer. You could even stuff the meatball mixture into a wonton and steam or fry them. Serve with a little sweet chili sauce and you’re good to go.
