This simple dinner of Asian Salmon Meatballs over Cauliflower Fried Rice has got my wheels spinning. My fantasy of owning a Food Truck featuring meatballs is always in the back of my mind, whirling and twirling with endless possibilities.

Asian Salmon Meatballs

Asian Salmon Meatballs would be a food truck hit! With just the right balance of fresh cilantro and ginger paired perfectly with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce. There’s a little kick from our new favorite Chili Crisp Oil. Every bite is so full of flavor that they’ll become a fan favorite.

These Asian Salmon Meatballs are perfectly seasoned and bursting with aromatic flavor that keeps you coming back for more!
