Last night I had a pound of kabobs to cook and no energy to go to the grocery store and buy specific ingredients for a marinade. I did, however, have a lemon.

I’ve been on a kick to find light, summer recipes for the venison. When it’s 90 degrees, a stew just doesn’t work. This citrus marinade was very refreshing…the perfect taste for a hot summer night!

Recipe: Venison Citrus Kabobs


  • 1 lb venison, cubed for skewers
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced


  1. Put all ingredients in a baggie, mix, and marinade in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Put meat on skewers and grill for about 2-3 minutes per side (cook to medium or medium rare, which doesn’t take long with venison).

Quick Notes

Very light and refreshing. I sauteed the onion slices in olive oil, which was a nice side to the meat, and served it all with rice.
