4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 Cornish game hens, about 1 1/4 pounds each, halved
1 scallion, including green top, chopped
4 Lime wedges, for serving




Heat the oven to 450 degrees F.

In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the butter with the oregano, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Rub the mixture over the skin of the hens and arrange them, skin-side up, on a baking sheet. Roast in the upper third of the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter with the scallion, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. When the hens are roasted, top with the scallion butter. Serve with lime wedges.


Wine Recommendation: A number of hearty red wines would be nice with the straightforward, rustic flavors here. Look for a Corbieres from the south of France, a zinfandel from California, or a Rosso di Montalcino from Tuscany in Italy.

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
