Ingredients

2 Cornish game hens

Marinade
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
2 cloves minced fresh garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp low-sodium tamari sauce
⅓ cup raspberry vinegar
⅓ cup plum wine
2 tsp chopped fresh mint
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp water

Instructions
  1. Cut thawed hens in half lengthwise and remove skin and wing bone. Place in a large, shallow bowl.
  2. In a blender container, puree raspberries, garlic oil, sauce, vinegar and wine until smooth. Add fresh mint and mix by hand.
  3. Pour ½ marinade over hens and marinate covered in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly coat a baking pan with olive oil.
  5. Place marinated hens in a baking pan, cover and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown, or until juices run clear when thigh is pierced with a fork.
  6. Pour remaining marinade through a fine mesh strainer into a small saucepan. In a small bowl or cup, combine cornstarch and water to form a thin paste. Stir into marinade, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.
  7. Serve 2 tablespoons sauce over each ½ hen.
Most Cornish hens you find at the market are frozen. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight to decrease the chance of bacterial growth.
