      Awesome! I used only 1 can of water chestnuts... all I had. I used fresh grated ginger root instead of ground ginger. I added 2 T. soy sauce, and 2 grated cloves of garlic. I used ground turkey since I had no shrimp. Yes, ground turkey. I can't wait to try this with shrimp! I also microwaved the "meatballs" to keep from having to fry them. They did not get a nice brown color, but with the sauces, it did not matter. Thanks for an inspirational recipe!

      Just a tip on making the balls themselves, using a miniature ice cream scoop (meatball scoop i guess) with the little scraper blade is perfect for forming these. Just scoop in, fill the cup about halfway, and scrape over the hot oil. great extra taste to add to this recipe is about 1/2 teaspoon of old bay seasoning, or more, based on your taste. adds a nice zing to it.
