Made & reviewed for ZWT4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I love ostrich & was excited to try this recipe but in the end couldn't get any when I needed it! So I used lamb which worked very well, I also subbed Paul Newmans Concord Grape Juice for the Wine. I will defnitely be making these Sosaties again as the whole maily went crazy for them ;) Thanks MarraMamba for such a GREAT recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put half the coriander for the marinade, salt, oil and garlic into a food processor with all the jam, cumin and red wine and blend until smooth.
  2. Cut the ostrich fillet into 4cm/1½in cubes. Place them into a non-metalic bowl and stir in the jam-flavoured marinade.
  3. Place the remaining coriander, salt, oil and garlic into a clean food processor with the lemon juice and blend until smooth.
  4. Halve all the peppers, remove the seeds and cut them into rough 2.5cm/1in cubes. Cut the ear of sweetcorn across into 2.5cm/1in thick slices and cut the patty pan squash into similar sized pieces.
  5. Place all the vegetables into another bowl and stir in the second marinate. Cover both bowls and leave to marinate in the fridge overnight.
  6. The next day, thread the meat and the vegetables alternately on to the skewers and barbecue over medium-hot coals for 10-12 minutes, turning now and then and basting with the leftover meat marinade.
