BAKED NOT FRIED
While you're at it, preheat the oven to 210 C / 410 F.
Squeeze out the juices from the grated zucchini into a sink. Return the grated flesh to a mixing bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients, including the egg, and mix everything until well incorporated.
Wet your hands and roll the meat mixture into medium-sized balls (a little smaller than a table tennis ball).
Place parchment paper over an oven tray. Grease lightly with oil (this is optional if you have non-stick paper). Place meatballs on top.
Drizzle each meatball with a few drops of the hot sauce.
Place the tray in the oven (make sure it’s hot!) on the middle shelf. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Serve with extra hot sauce and some lime wedges.
