      Title: Tea-smoked game hen
 Categories: Chinese, Game hens, Poultry
      Yield: 3 Servings
 
  1 1/2 lb Game hen
           Salt; to taste
           Freshly ground black -
           Pepper; to taste
      2 tb Chinese rice wine OR
           Dry sherry
      2 tb Sesame oil
      3 tb Jasmine tea leaves
      4 tb Alder or hickory sawdust
      6 c  Peanut oil; for deep-frying
 
     Cut the bird in half, using poultry shears or a Chinese cleaver.
     Rub the halves with salt and pepper, wine and sesame oil. Allow to
  marinate for 2 hours.
     Dip the halves into boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and place
  on a rack for drying.
     Smoke the halves in a Cameron stove-top smoker for 15 minutes,
  using the tea leaves and the alder or hickory sawdust.
     Place the halves on a plate and steam in a bamboo steamer for 20
  minutes.  Allow the pieces to cook, then deep-fry in hot peanut oil
  at 375 degrees until golden brown and crispy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
     This recipe serves 3 to 4 as part of a Chinese meal.
  
    Comments:  The game hen is a relatively recent bird, a development
  of modern agricultural science. However, in old China similar birds
  were common and this method of cooking remains a classic.
