Lamb Meatballs with Green Goddess Sauce


The Green Goddess Sauce

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

The Meatballs

Heat oven to 400°F. Place lamb in a large mixing bowl. In a small sauté pan, heat oil and cook shallots and garlic until fragrant. Add to lamb and stir gently to combine. Add remaining ingredients and gently stir to combine. Reheat sauté pan and cook a small amount of lamb mixture to check seasoning. Adjust if desired. Shape meat into 20-24 meatballs and arrange on an oven-proof tray coated with oil. Bake 15-20 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 160°F.
