Stuffed Roasted Game Hen with Sundried Blueberry Butter Sauce is a masterpiece of taste! The stuffing alone calls for natural ingredients including fresh figs, oyster mushrooms, butter and sundried blueberries. The sauce includes chopped shallots, Chardonnay and bay leaves. The game hen is then displayed, garnished and sauced.
For the Stuffing:
Mix all ingredients. Stuff each game hen from neck end, tie closed and tuck legs under.
Brush with some melted butter and dust with salt and pepper. Roast 30-35 minutes (or until done) in a convection oven. While game is roasting prepare sauce.
In a saucepan, mix all ingredients except butter and cream. Reduce until almost dry.
Reduce again until cream thickens slightly.
Turn flame to low and whisk in butter, several small pieces at a time.
After butter is whisked in, purée slightly with a handheld blender.
Cut Game Hen in 1/2 and arrange cut side down in an upside down "V" shape. Ladle 2 oz. Of sauce in the front of the plate. Garnish with five sundried blueberries across top of the plate, three coriander leaves and a grilled Oyster Mushroom.
