Method

For 6 birds melt some butter in a shallow earthenware dish just large enough to hold the birds, allowing 30 g (1 oz) per 6 buntings. Season them with salt, roll them in the butter, then place in a very hot oven for'3 minutes.

On removing from the oven sprinkle them with pineapple juice, cover with the lid and serve immediately.
