Meatballs are quite a staple in Mediterranean kitchen, but they are usually made with tomato sauce and Mediterranean flavors. I decided to give this meal a slight Eastern twist and used different spices. Tomato sauce was substituted by soy sauce.

This is a great party dish, be sure your guests will enjoy it. I like to make smaller bite-sized meatballs and put them on skewers. Simply line them on serving plate and put a bowl of soy sauce in the middle.
