Wasabi Meatballs

Minced meat ( chicken , beef or pork ) can be prepared in many can either have it steamed  with duck yolk and eggs or steamed it with preserved veggie ( tung choy in cantonese ) or make them into meat cutlets but for once I would like to stuff wasabi into the meatballs and deep fry them till crispy on the outside and juicy inside.Pour some oyster sauce gravy over it.  Ooh la la is one dish I don't mind making again coz I love wasabi  so does Jo.. and Daddy loves it too * wink 

Every bite is heavenly and the pungent wasabi can choke your nostril and sent you back to earth. And you can go on and on...without can get addicted after the first meatball.  You can eat it sans gravy as a finger food or with onion rings oyster sauce gravy.

can you spot the wasabi oozing out of the meatballs ......

you can eat it sans gravy or eat it
