Shrimp & Chorizo Brunch Bobotie
This recipe is a modernised brunch spin on the traditional Bobotie that South Africans love. It’s got most of the spice elements of a traditional Bobotie but it’s lighter and more fun. Instead of ground beef or minced meat, I used Shrimps and Chorizo Sausage to give it that brunch feel. You can also try prawns instead of Shrimps which work just as well. I also left out the bread element which ordinarily makes the meal quite heavy. It is Spring after all so the lighter the better for those summer bodies! The addition of the fresh herbs gives this dish a freshness that’ll make sure you enjoy it during warmer days.
I did this new recipe for a partnership I have with Megamaster as part of its Heritage Month campaign celebrating our common South African Heritage. The Bobotie was made on our Megamaster gas braai instead of the oven. We’re spending more days outside since its warmer so this is the perfect way to get more uses out of your braai while spending time with family huddled around the braai. What fun! Hint: Remember to keep your eye on the braai while the Bobotie is cooking. I hope you enjoy my variation of this age-old recipe.
