Cinnamon Roasted Hens Recipe

Juice and pulp of 1 lime
1 ts Minced ginger root
1/4 ts Saffron threads, crushed
1/2 ts Dried dill
1/4 ts Curry powder
3 Garlic cloves, mashed
2 Allspice berries, crushed
1/2 ts Dried summer savory
1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
2 Cornish hens, halved

In a large baking dish, combine the lime juice and plup, garlic,
ginger, allspice, saffron, savory, dill, cinnamon and curry powder.
Add the hens to the dish and rub the well with the spice mixture.
Cover, refrigerate and let marinate overnight. Set the hens, skin

minutes, or until the skin is browned and the meat is cooked through
