I thought this one up on holidays when we were able to buy a pack of 4 big plump quail-one of my favourite birds.

Easy and extremely delicious marinade! The quails were juicy, full of flavor, and got wild approval from a mother that tend to frown on anything different. This will become my default poultry marinade!
