    Russell found this recipe for quail in a Melbourne newspaper and plans to cook it for me soon (if I have my way!) The recipe suggests it serves 4 for a main course or 8 as an appetiser.

      This was wonderful, the cooking method for the quail helped bring out the flavours and the dressing was simple yet spectacular and really set it all off. I cooked on a BBQ with the hood down to let it cook through and used a few toothpicks to keep the quail together because otherwise I could see it falling apart a bit while turning. It's a bit tricky to get the temperature right on a BBQ but it would also come out great in an oven placed towards the top for good browning for anyone put off by using a BBQ.

      YUM! I used just the dressing on the quail & served it with asian greens & rice, but as the name suggests it would be PERFECT on the BBQ! Very tasty, but still light, and sooooo easy to make....
