Gingered apricot and ostrich skewers

Recipe from: 7/22/2001 12:00:00 AM

Ingredients 9
Servings 4


  • 500
    ostrich fillet or steaks
  • 75
    apricot jam
  • 1
    lemon, juice
  • 1
    orange, juice
  • 3
    ground black pepper
  • 3
    minced ginger
  • 5
    beef stock powder
  • generous handful fresh coriander
  • soft eating apricots


Cube ostrich and place in a shallow dish. Mix remaining ingredients, except apricots, together and pour over meat.
Allow meat to marinate for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile soak wooden skewers in cold water for at least 20 minutes - this helps prevent the wood burning during cooking.
Alternately thread the meat and apricots onto each skewer, allowing 2 skewers per person.
Preheat the grill (or make a braai) and cook the kebabs, basting regularly for 3-4 minutes per side.
Serve with boiled baby potatoes or brown rice and a mixed salad.
