Everyday Harumi but decided to try the recipe for these little meat patties instead.
They would make great little sliders or appetizers for a party.
I adjusted the recipe for the ingredients I had on hand .
1 lb ground chicken
2 stalks celery finely diced
1 small round onion finely diced
1 large egg
4 T unbleached all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 T chopped cilantro
Combine all ingredients and shape into small patties 2' across
set aside on parchment lined baking sheet and chill while making Teriyaki sauce.
1/2 c mirin
1/2 c soy sauce ( I use kikoman low sodium)
4 T lt brown sugar
1 t ginger juice ( grate ginger , squeeze juice out of the pulp, discard pulp)
combine all ingredients in small sauce pan and bring to boil over med high heat , reduce heat to low and simmer 15 to 20 min until sauce is reduced and syrupy
Cut 2 green onions on a sharp diagonal and set aside.
heat a large non stick fry pan over med high heat and when hot add enough oil to glaze the bottom of the pan put patties in the pan without crowding , fry patties until bottom is golden then turn over and cover fro 2 minutes remove cover and continue cooking until patties are browned and cooked through.
Place teriyaki sauce in shallow bowl and add patties turning to coat , thread on skewers and garnish with green onions.
