6-8 Woodcock -feeds 3 or 4 people
Fillet off breasts of the woodcock w/no skin

Minced 2 large cloves of garlic
3-4 tablespoons of Soy sauce
1 tbs+- of brown sugar
Several drops + of Asian Sesame oil
1 oz+- hard liquor. (I used rum but whiskey etc would work)
(cut up some green onion-put aside)
Marinade WC meat for an hour or so.
Heat a pan w/1 tbs veg oil til smoking hot. Add meat and stir cook til meat turns color--keep heat high. Just a few minutes. Check to make sure it is rare! Dont overcook.

Ran across this recipe in the Upland Journal forums, everyone there raves about it--thought I'd pass it along. Haven't tried it yet.
