Balsamic strawberry and venison kebabs


1 tub of Angus summer strawberries from the market

Some Stark oils rapeseed oil from the market

3-4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

Gartmorn free range chicken breast/venison medallions from Hubertus game

Chicken stock cube

Sea salt & cracked black pepper

Mint from Ashbrook Nurseries or Myreside Organics

Peppery leaf from Myreside organics



1. Bring 500ml of stock to the boil in a saucepan and then reduce the heat to a simmer

2. Remove the leaf then slice each strawberry in half from top to bottom and place on a tray

3. Mix some rapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar in a bowl and brush all over the strawberries.

4. Slice venison or chicken into piece the same size as the strawberry halves.

5. Poach the venison or chicken in the simmering stock until each piece is cooked through. Use a probe if unsure the chicken should reach 75 degrees centigrade inside and the venison just 40-50+ degrees centigrade depending on if you want it rare/medium - remember it is going to be finished off on a BBQ or grill and will go tough if you over cook it.

6. Once the meat pieces are poached, drain them and skewer them on a kebab stick with some strawberries and mint. Brush some more of the balsamic oil mix onto your kebabs and season with a little sea salt and cracked black pepper. 

7. Heat a griddle pan/the grill or a BBQ and when ready sear the kebabs for 2-3 minutes each side until the strawberries have started to char and soften.

8. Remove the kebabs from the grill and serve with some peppery leaves dressed with rapeseed oil and balsamic then eat!
