Frankly, I sick of this cold weather … and have started dreaming of warm sunshine and barbeque ….
12 doves (OR quail)
6 canned jalapenos
6 slices bacon
Italian salad dressing
Salt and pepper
Marinate doves in milk overnight.* Remove and dry. Place 1/2 jalapeno inside cavity of each dove.
Wrap 1/2 slice bacon around each dove; secure with toothpick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Barbecue over slow fire with generous applications of Italian salad dressing about 30 minutes.
Remember: Use ceramic, glass or enamel ware when marinating game.
* This is critical. It reduces the gamey taste and breaks down the muscle fibers, thus increasing tenderness.
