Yield: 4 servings
|6||Cornish Game Hens, about 1|
|12||Garlic cloves, peeled|
|1½ medium||White onions, peeled|
|1½ tablespoon||Sea salt|
|1 tablespoon||Freshly ground black pepper|
|1 tablespoon||Ground cinnamon|
|½ teaspoon||Ground cloves|
|1½ cup||Orange juice|

Place the hens in a large glass bowl.
In a blender, puree the garlic, onion, salt, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, orange juice, tangerine juice, and olive oil.
Pour the puree over the hens and marinate for a minimum of 4 hours at room temperature, or in the refrigerator, overnight.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Place the hens in a greased baking dish and spoon the marinade over them. Bake for about ½ hour, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees.
Continue baking, basting occasionally, for another ½ hour or until crispy. Remove the hens from the oven and cover with foil. Set aside for 20 minutes.
Serve with bulgur pilaf and spicy orange salsa.
