    If you can find Cornish game hens they make a delicious and impressive barbecue dinner. These are better the longer they are marinated - I prefer up to 24 hours.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 Cornish game hens, halved
    • 1 cup diced parsley
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 5 cloves garlic, diced
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons diced fresh rosemary
    • 1 cup (250ml) white wine

    1. In a small bowl combine the garlic, parsley and 2 tablespoons olive oil.
    2. Rinse hens and pat dry. Rub remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil on the inside and outside of the hens. Stuff the garlic and parsley mixture under skin and around each bird. Season with salt and pepper. Place seasoned hens in an airtight plastic container. Sprinkle with rosemary and pour wine over birds. Cover and refrigerate at least overnight to marinate.
    3. Preheat barbecue for low heat.
    4. Remove hens from marinade and place on heated barbecue. Cook for 40 minutes, turning once, or until done.
