N 4 doves, plucked, gutted, and patted dry
N ⅛ cup soy sauce
N 2 tbsp aji amarillo
N 1 tbsp honey
N 2 limes
Lime zest to taste
Canola to taste
Salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix soy sauce, 2 limes juice and zest, aji Amarillo and honey, add doves and toss to evenly coat. Allow to season in fridge for 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to broil.
  • Drain seasoning from doves, shake off the excess, lightly oil with canola, season very lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Place the doves in pan and broil (~4” from broiler), breast side up for 3’, rotate and broil for another 3’. Rotate and broil for 2-3’ more to crisp up skin and reach internal temperature of 130° F (55° C).
  • Remove from hot pan and serve with your favorite late summer fixings. You could use blistered shishito peppers, broiling them in the same pan with the doves, and a tomato and red onion salad with lots of lemon.

Other Info

Dove season represents that transition from summer to fall, from fishing to hunting. The days are getting shorter and the nights cooler. This is the time of the year when we start getting our gear together, hang stands, zero the guns, clean the decoys and start mentally preparing for our favorite time of the year.
We usually only get one or two dove shoots in a year, though we wish we could do more. Dove hunting is fun, low pressure and usually involves friends, dogs and a lot of laughs.
This recipe is a simple one, pluck your birds, season them, and roast in the oven or on the grill. You want the skin crispy and the breast meat just barely medium rare.
The aji amarillo paste called for in this recipe can be found in most supermarkets nowadays. It’s a yellow pepper paste commonly used in Peruvian cooking, and has a bright, tropical fruity heat perfect for an end of summer meal.
