It's quite a show when the birds are served flaming and the lights are dimmed. Very romantic.

How to Make Flaming Birds

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove giblets from frozen birds and discard or save for another use
  2. Melt butter in a heavy skillet with heat proof handles. Season birds with salt and pepper, then brown lightly all over in butter, turning frequently. About 20 minutes
  3. When hens are browned add sherry to the pan and transfer it to the oven. Roast birds 45 to 60 minutes, until they are tender basting often.
  4. Transfer hens to a heated and heat proof serving dish. Warm brandy in a small saucepan and ignite it. Pour quickly over hens and serve flaming.
  5. If you cannot get Rock Cornish hens you can use squab, small chickens or quail. Just adjust the cooking time per size / pounds of birds.
