 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 1/4 c Balsamic vinegar
  • 4 lg Garlic cloves; minced
  • 3 tb Fresh cilantro; chopped
  • 3 tb Honey
  • 3 tb Soy sauce
  • 2 tb Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tb Ground ginger
  • 1/2 ts Crushed red pepper
  • 1 ds Black pepper
  • 2 1/2 lb Cornish game hens; split in
  • -half


In a medium size bowl combine the first ten ingredients. Mix until smooth.
Place Game Hens in a shallow non-reactive container. Pour the marinade over
the hens and cover. Place the container in the refrigerator overnight. Turn
the hens once overnight so all sides are exposed to marinade.

Remove hens from container and pat dry the marinade with paper towels.
Prepare the grill for the indirect cooking method. Put hens on hot grid
with coals at medium-hot and cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes then turn to the
other side. Cook an additional 20 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Remove hens from grill and place on hot platter. Let sit for 10 minutes
prior to service so that the juices are absorbed back into the hens.
