In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons oil on medium until shimmering. Form seasoned ground turkey into 2-inch thick balls (it should make about 6, 2-ounce meatballs). Sear meatballs, turning several times, until golden brown on all sides and firm to the touch, 12 to 14 minutes. Move on to next steps while cooking.
