Recipe: Boerewors sosaties

Boerewors sosaties

In South Africa we call it sosaties, but in Turkey a skewered dish like this is called "shish kebabs" and the Greeks call it "souvlakia". By any name, this version with boerewors is delicious.

500 g thin or thick boerewors, cut in 3-5 cm pieces
smoked bacon rashers

Marinade for vegetables:
Mix 125 ml (1/2 c) olive oil with 62,5 ml (14 c) chopped, mixed herbs, 3 cloves of garlic, crushed and ground black pepper

Marinate vegetables in season and according to taste e.g. mushrooms, baby marrow and sweetcorn slices, cherry tomatoes, pickled onions, eggplant cubes, etc. in herb and olive oil for at least 1 hour.

Wrap pieces of boerewors in bacon and thread, alternating with vegetables onto bamboo or kebab skewers. Grill over medium coals or in preheated oven at 220°. Baste frequently with marinade. Serve hot with bread and salad.
