Leave it to Four Seasons Hualalai in Hawaii to create this delicious Cornish Game Hen Recipe. What could be better for a quick dinner recipe than a jazzy entree with an Asian twist?  Market fresh peas and pea tendrils are the perfect answer for great presentation. The best part? This easy recipe  can be prepared the night before.

Many thanks to Chef Ricardo at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai’s new Asian themed U’LU Restaurant on the Big Island of Hawaii for sharing this delicious recipe.

While we can’t duplicate the sandy beach and sunset on the Pacific Ocean that guests enjoy, we can dream about our return to Hawaii over a candlelight dinner savoring this Asian Cornish Game Hen romantic dinner recipe.



1 cornish game hen
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup sake
2 ounces sugar
1 ounce sesame oil
2 ounces dark soy


Place all ingredients, except the game hen, in a small sauce pot.

Bring to a boil and turn off the heat.

Place the sauce pan in the refrigerator to cool.

Once liquid is cold,  combine half of the soy mixture  with the
game hen.

Marinate for a minimum of 6 hours. 24 hours is best, so easiest to make up the night before.

Reserve the rest of soy mixture for later use. After marinating, roast in a 345 degree oven for 40 minutes or until bird reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees.

Once cooked, cut  game hen in 1/2 and serve with pea tendrils.

Drizzle leftover soy sake mixture over hen.
