  • 1
    kudu fillet, 6 cm thick
  • 1/2
  • 30

  • 1

Servings: Change Serving


Use a thin, sharp knife to make an incision along the length of the fillet to form a pocket. Don’t cut right through.

Combine the rest of the ingredients and use a spoon to scoop it into the pocket.

Make sure the coals are very hot and braai the fillet about 15 cm above them for seven minutes a side. Rest the meat under a sheet of foil for 10 minutes before you slice it.


Only season your venison with salt once you’ve removed it from the coals, otherwise it will dry out the meat.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
