BBQ cornish game hens

Print this post
For my birthday this year, the in-laws made me one of my favorite meals: Cornish Game Hens!  In this case, they make a mean lime ginger marinade, which is so simple, but caramelizes so well on the grill it's flavor is out of this world!  Enjoy!  And if you are unfamiliar with the "spatchcocking" technique of flattening game hens or chicken, here's a video I found:

Lime Ginger Marinade for Spatchcocked Game Hens

4 cups soy or tamari sauce

½ cup sesame oil

4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger

1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 12 limes)

Marinate the game hens 2 to 24 hours.

(This recipe makes enough marinade for several grillings; use what is needed for the number of hens to be served (1 cup of marinade per hen) and refrigerate the remainder. Or, reduce the ingredients to make what is needed for one grilling.)

Grill hens slowly, 15 to 20 minutes per side. Serve with grilled veggies.
