Jalapeño Stuffed Snipe

Rich and wild, with a touch of heat, jalapeño stuffed snipe is a unique and fun dish. The small bird is stuffed with whole pepper, then plank cooked on the grill or roasted in the oven.

Snipe hunting is a myth for some people but for wing shooters, it’s a fun reality. An elusive, seasonal game bird, snipes may be small, but they are tasty. 

The key to a perfect snipe dish is to cook them quickly with high heat. If you can’t find snipe, try substituting other small game birds like quail or squab. Oven broiling or direct cooking on a hot grill is also an option. Broil or grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side.
