A quail is a small, plump, ground-nesting bird. Quail hunting is a popular sport, and many good chefs know the value of the quail in the kitchen.

Quail can be cooked in a number of manners, including the following:

  • Barbeque: The size and nature of quail make them a great candidate for barbequing. Use a simple marinade as a base, grill and then top with your favorite barbeque sauce.
  • Roasting: Like other types of birds, quail is great for roasting. Try rubbing your birds with a little olive oil and a spice rub before roasting.
  • Stewing: Quail meat adds a great flavor to a stew. Boil the quail and then pull all of the meat off of the bones. Add to a vegetable stew.

Quail recipes can be a welcome addition to any kitchen.
