Pan-Fried Cornmeal & Cumin-Rubbed Cornish Game Hens for Two

1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tbsp. chopped scallions
2 tsp. chopped and peeled fresh ginger
1 large egg
1 heaping tbsp. ground cumin
1/3 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
5 tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 (14-oz.) Cornish game hens, butterflied and backbone removed
1 tbsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Place cilantro, scallions, and ginger in a shallow bowl; mix together.

Lightly beat the egg in another shallow bowl.

Combine cumin, cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper in a third shallow bowl.

Dip hens in cilantro mixture, then in the egg, then in the cornmeal mixture.

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and when it is hot, add the oil.

Add the hens 1 at a time, and sauté until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Put hens in a large baking pan.

Roast until they are deep brown and completely cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Serves 2.
