Grilled Game Hens With Citrus, Ginger, and Soy

Time: 24 hrs 30 mins


  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oriental toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup sherry wine or 1/4 cup marsala wine
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 rock cornish game hens


  • 1 Grate the outer layer of peel from the orange and the lemon; juice half the lemon, and place all marinade ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • 2 Butterfly the game hens: cut out the backbone with sharp kitchen shears, turn the hen over (breast up) and bend the breast backward where it attaches to the breastbone; place your thumbs on either side of the breastbone and press down while pulling up on the outer sides of the breast with your fingers (I find this difficult--I just take the heels of my hands and smash it).
  • 3 Place hens in a plastic bag with the marinade, force out excess air, seal tight and leave in the refrigerator overnight.
  • 4 Set up grill for indirect cooking. Remove hens from marinade and grill, covered, for about 30 minutes or until breast meat registers 165-170F on an instant-read thermometer (mine took about 45 minutes).
