Springbok and Baby Onion Kebabs

These traditional homegrown South African kebabs are delicious! You can use any other venison fillet available e.g. kudu, blesbok etc. Never overcook the tender cuts of venison, like fillet, the meat should still be medium rare. The secret to the success of this recipe definitely lies in marinating both the meat and the onions separately overnight. The meat absorbs all the flavour of the seasoning and olive oil and the onions become soft and tender.


  • 1 - 2 springbok fillets
  • Ina Paarman's Braai & Grill Seasoning
  • olive oil
  • 300 - 500 g baby onions, peeled and halved from top to bottom
  • Ina Paarman's Green Onion Seasoning
  • olive oil
  • kebab sticks
  • Ina Paarman’s Sticky Marinade

Cut springbok fillets in half lengthways and then across into ± 6 cm pieces. Season with Braai & Grill Seasoning and toss with ¼ cup olive oil. Seal in an airtight container or plastic bag. At the same time, prepare the onions.

Toss the halved onions with the Green Onion Seasoning and 2 – 3 T of olive oil. Seal and refrigerate overnight.

Thread meat and onions onto skewers or kebab sticks.

Cook and turn over gentle heat in a cast iron pan or on the braai while basting with Sticky Marinade from time to time.
