Source: Source Description:
Ethnicity: Last Modified: 2/22/2014
Base: Poultry Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

2 Cornish game hens, about 1
1/3 pounds each
4 Shallots sliced
2 Garlic cloves, sliced
1 Tablespoon(s) Ground coriander
3 To 7 fresh hot red chiles
seeded sliced
1/2 Piece fresh ginger, sliced
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Ground Turmeric
Salt to taste
2 Tablespoon(s) Lime juice
2 Cup(s) Coconut milk
2 Stalks lemon grass or 1
slice lemon
Split open the game hens from the breast side and flatten them out
into a butterfly shape. Discard loose skin and fat. Broil the hens
for 3 minutes on each side. Process the shallots, garlic, coriander,
chile, ginger, turmeric, salt, lime juice and 1/2 cup of the coconut
milk to a smooth sauce. Marinate the hens in the sauce for 15 minutes.
Put the hens in a large skillet and cook over moderate heat for 10
minutes uncovered. Then add the remaining coconut milk and the lemon
grass. Bring to a boil and cook for 30 minutes, basting occasionally,
until the hens are tender and almost all the liquid has evaporated.
Serve warm. Serves 4. San Francisco Chronicle, 3/9/88. Posted by
