Season the Cornish hen liberally with Kosher salt & pepper. Be sure to season inside of cavity. Mix remaining oil and capers with brine in vegetable mixture. Stir vegetable mixture well. Place a bed of half the vegetable mixture on a sheet pan. Lovingly rub the remaining vegetables on and inside the hens. Next rub the chopped fresh herbs on the hens.
