Coturnix Quail From Vermont- The Best I’ve Ever Eaten!

 

I don’t think I’ve had finer quail! This is the new product that a farm in Vermont is packing for us at Preferred Meats. Large, plump and flavorful these Japanese Coturnix quail are truly exceptional!

Here’s what I did:

I squeezed a fresh Celmentine over the tunnel boned bird and then rubbed with cumin, smoked pimenton, salt and olive oil. I filled the cavity with the orange pulp. Then I pan roasted and basted the quail.

I deglazed with a little red wine and chicken stock then finished the sauce with with a little dried fruit compote and EVOO powder.

Moist, flavorful, and you really would be stuffed if you ate two. This I think is a great value because you can get by with one in a coursed out meal.
