Best Grilled Dove
Sent in by Lawrence.

~ dove breasts, skinned
~ 1 bottle Italian dressing or your favorite marinade
OR use
~ 1/4 cup olive oil
~ 1/4 cup lemon juice
~ salt and pepper
~ garlic cloves, crushed
~ bacon
~ onions, cut into wedges
~ jalapeno peppers, sliced, optional

Soak the breasts in saltwater overnight.

Remove the meat and drain.

Place the meat in a large zip lock bag and add the Italian dressing, your favorite marinade or mix the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste together adding the garlic if desired and pouring over the meat.

Seal and refrigerate at least an hour. Longer is better for more flavor.

Remove the meat and lay a wedge of onion on it and wrap entire thing with Ĺ slice of bacon. Secure with toothpicks.

Place bone side down and grill over medium-high heat until the bacon is fully cooked.

Remove from the heat and let rest about 5 minutes before serving.


"Substitute a slice of jalapeno pepper in place of the onion or add with the onion. Also try using different spices in the marinade like chili powder, barbeque spice or Worcestershire sauce. Donít overcook your doves! Medium to medium rare is ideal for doves. Make sure the bacon is fully cooked." - Lawrence
