Categories: Vietnamese, Poultry
Yield: 4 Servings
4 Cornish game hens (14 ounces
4 Garlic cloves
2 Shallots, or 3 green onions,
-white part only
1 1/2 tb Sugar
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Black pepper
1/2 ts Five spice powder
1 1/2 tb Vietnamese fish sauce
1 1/2 tb Light soy sauce
1 1/2 tb Dry sherry
This aromatic barbecued game hen can be easily served West- ern style
with rice, cole slaw or a green salad. [But it would be better with
Thai cucumber salad or Vietnamese carrot salad. Mmmm... S.C.]
Halve the hens through the breast. Flatten with the palm of your hand.
In a mortar or food processor, pound or mince garlic, shallots and
sugar. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture
over hens; marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight in refrigerator.
Set hens, skin-side down, on grill and barbecue over medium coals for
15 minutes. Turn and barbecue 15 minutes longer or until they are
thoroughly cooked. Serve with Nuoc Cham dipping sauce.
