Lamb and apricot Braai Sosaties

Home » braai marinade for chicken

For more similar fantastic braai sosatie recipes click here! more recipes…

Ingredients:

  • 900g lamb neck fillet, cut into 1cm discs
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 6-8 wedges and separated into slivers
  • 200g dried apricots

For the marinade

  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 bay leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 5 tbsp apricot jam
  • 5 tbsp red wine vinegar

Directions

  1. First make the marinade: set a small saucepan over a medium heat, then add the cumin and coriander seeds and cardamom pods. Toast for a couple of minutes, stirring, until they smell fragrant, then tip into a pestle and mortar and roughly grind.
  2. Pour the oil into the pan, add the chopped onion, bay leaves and salt and cook very gently for 15-20 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, crushed spices, turmeric and cinnamon and cook for another minute. Spoon in the jam and add the vinegar, along with a good grind of black pepper. Cook for a few minutes until the jam has melted and you have a sticky sauce. Pour into a bowl and set aside to cool completely.
  3. Once the marinade is cold, add the lamb and stir thoroughly to coat each piece. Cover and keep in the fridge for 24 hours if you have time – longer wouldn’t hurt at all (see Genevieve’s know-how).
  4. When you’re ready to cook, fire up your barbecue ready for direct grilling but, as always, leave a good area of the grill surface with no coals under so you can slide the skewers off the direct heat if they’re cooking too fast.
  5. Thread the lamb pieces onto skewers, alternating with the slivers of onion and apricots. Lay the skewers on the grill bars over the hot coals and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side – so around 8-12 minutes in total – until the lamb is cooked and the apricots are lightly charred. Serve hot from the grill.
