Vanns Sichuan Peppercorns add a spicy twist to cumin-scented lamb meatballs, counterbalanced with a cooling cucumber salad.
Ground lamb lends itself naturally to the flavors of the Middle East, but a lesser known region that makes great use of lamb can be found in the Sichuan region of China. Cumin is still made great use of in these lamb meatballs, but the flavor is pushed in a different direction with the use of savory soy sauce and Vanns Sichuan Peppercorns, which provide a particular kind of slightly tingling, numbing heat. A cooling cucumber salad with more Sichuan peppercorns and some nutty toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds provides the perfect balance for this light meal.
