    1. 1
      Grate the outer layer of peel from the orange and the lemon; juice half the lemon, and place all marinade ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
    2. 2
      Butterfly the game hens: cut out the backbone with sharp kitchen shears, turn the hen over (breast up) and bend the breast backward where it attaches to the breastbone; place your thumbs on either side of the breastbone and press down while pulling up on the outer sides of the breast with your fingers (I find this difficult--I just take the heels of my hands and smash it).
    3. 3
      Place hens in a plastic bag with the marinade, force out excess air, seal tight and leave in the refrigerator overnight.
    4. 4
      Set up grill for indirect cooking. Remove hens from marinade and grill, covered, for about 30 minutes or until breast meat registers 165-170F on an instant-read thermometer (mine took about 45 minutes).

      This marinade gives the game hen an excellent citrusy flavor. Everything melds together well, with nothing overpowering. A real keeper! Would be good on salmon also!
