Simple Roast Quail
whole quail (2 per person)
Olive oil or melted butter
Seasoning or favourite rub
white wine or chicken stock
Preheat your oven to 200 C
Remove the wishbone from each quail (optional)
Place the quails in a roasting tray
Rub the olive oil or melted butter all over the skin and season with your favourite rub or seasoning or salt and pepper
Put the roasting tray in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes. Halfway through add a dash of white wine or chicken stock into the tray (to prevent your quail from drying out)
Remove from the oven and cover the roasting tray with tin foil and leave rest for 5 minutes.
Serve whole or carve before serving
Before cooking, tuck the wings in or cover in foil so they don't burn or overcook.
