In a large bowl, combine turkey, onion, herbs, syrup, Chinese 5-spice, 1 tablespoon of oil, salt, and pepper. Using a cookie dough scoop (or spoon), scoop mixture into approximate 2-inch balls. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add balls, flattening to about 1⁄2 inch thick. Cook for 3–4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
