REC:Pomegranate-Honey Roasted Game Hens

I wish I could take credit for this but it came via email, next time I see pomegranates they are being reserved for this gorgeous looking recipe!

Pomegranate-Honey Roasted Game Hens

Prep: 15 min, Marinate: 8:00, Cook: 35 min
  • 2/3 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 game hens, split in half
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 2 tsp. pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tsp. Chopped, roasted pistachio nuts, for garnish
Mix first 7 ingredients; pour over hens. Marinate, covered, overnight or at least 8 hours in the refrigerator, turning occasionally. Drain hens, reserving marinade. Simmer marinade, covered for 10 minutes; reserve. Season hens with salt and pepper. Bake at 450°F, basting frequently with reserved marinade, until hens are just firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven; let rest covered with a tea towel for 5 minutes. Brush each half with remaining honey. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and chopped pistachios.

Note: To make 1 cup pomegranate juice, put 1-1/2 cups -2 cups seeds in a blender; blend until liquified. Pour mixture through a cheesecloth-lined strainer or sieve.

I won't do this step. I will just buy that POM juice at the store. Otherwise, fantastic recipe, IC!

Thanks mudbug, I was thinking the same thing too. (Those POM bottles are so neat, the little heart as the letter "o" is so cute!)

I think you could easly make this recipe with chicken (or chicken pieces) as well, or perhaps even better duck!
