    This is from Charmaine Solomon's Encyclopedia of Asian Food, one of my most used cookbooks. The toasted rice gives a lovely crisp finish and the marinade is delicious.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Using scissors or poultry shears, split the quail down the backbone and open out flat-I like to remove the backbone, and pull the tiny breast bones out (it's easy).
    2. 2
      Rinse and clean the cavity, and if the birds have been frozen, dry well with paper towel.
    3. 3
      Crush the garlic with the salt until very smooth, then mix in the remaining ingredients.
    4. 4
      Rub the mixture well into the quail, then cover and marinate at least 1 hour or overnight if time permits.
    5. 5
      Remove from the marinade, reserving it.
    6. 6
      Preheat a grill or broiler and cook, turning and brushing the quail at least twice with any remaining marinade.
    7. 7
      It the marinade is too thick to brush on, dilute it with a tablespoon each of oil and water.
    8. 8
      Cook until the quail are brown and crisp and done to your liking. I cooked our to medium and it took about 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      *Toast the rice in a dry pan, then grind with a mortar and pestle, the ground rice helps give the quail their nice crunchy coating.

      I used this recipe for roasting my Christmas Quail dinner and I am so happy that I chose it. When I first looked at the spices I was concerned that it would be like a curried hen and although there is a hint of curry flavor this is a very rounded blend of spices that gives an exotic flavor. Watch you don't burn them with the marinade they could get very brown quite quickly. I used an apple brine and brined them for only 6 hours before marinating them for 6 hours. the combination of brining & then marinating them was wonderful The birds were succulent. Thanks Jan for a memorable Christmas dinner
