Perfect for your next camping trip, these Asian-inspired Turkey Rissoles are cooked in a skillet, packed with flavor, and easy to make. Often rolled in breadcrumbs or enclosed in a pastry, we’ve kept these simple without the coating. Alternatively, the mixture can be made into meatballs.
Rissoles are similar to burger patties but are served as the meat part of a meal rather than in a hamburger bun. This version is made from turkey and Asian-inspired flavors including ginger, garlic, and cilantro. They are shallow-fried to cook them through and add moisture.
As the turkey is ground it is also a great option for using wild turkey meat that has been harvested on your last hunting trip. The grinding helps make the meat less tough and easy to eat if this is a concern. You can also use ground pork or chicken.
Asian-inspired Turkey Rissoles Recipe
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 2 cloves garlic crushed
- 3/4 inch ginger minced
- 1 handful cilantro (coriander), finely diced
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper to taste
- oil as required
- In a bowl add the ground turkey, garlic, ginger, cilantro, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
- Divide the mixture into four equal-sized balls, then squash to make a rissole. If making meatballs, divide them into eight equal-sized balls.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey rissoles and cook until golden brown, then turn and cook the other side, about 6 minutes on each side. Ensure that they are cooked all the way through before serving.
