Grilled Asian-Style Cornish Game Hens


Marinade
1 T sesame oil
3 T soy sauce
1 t sugar
1/4 c Chinese rice wine
1 T rice vinegar
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t five-spice powder
Combine ingredients in a zipper plastic bag. Prepare two game hens by removing the backbone and splaying out, pressing down hard to flatten the breast. Refrigerate hens in the marinade for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Beginning with the meat side down and the wing tips tucked, grill the flattened hens, over a moderate fire covered. Turn every 4 minutes, until cooked through, about 35 minutes total. Serves four. Roasted mixed vegetables and couscous make good sides.
