When we were in the NT and Qld quail was a regular meal for us and very tasty. Bought some from the Flagstaff Hill Foodland and cooked them up last night. Marinated in a simple lemon juice, olive oil and thyme for a couple of hours then onto a hot plate and grill. Tasted great with a fresh salad.

Will certainly be having them again soon. May try them over charcoal in the fire pit next time as long as it is a bit warmer outside. Robert

Very nice Robert.  They look yummy.

I used to cook quail quite a lot when I was doing camp oven cooking demonstrations years ago.

Used to butterfly them, then marinate in olive oil and a few different herbs, (usually fresh thyme and oregano) put a skewer through them to keep flat and cook in a very hot Bedourie camp oven.

Used to also cook at the same time a potato bake using sweet potato and pineapple.

Haven’t had them in a while as Maggie is not overly fond of them.  In fact I can only remember once since we have been in this house and that is six years now.

Aldi used to have them as a special buy every now and then in packs of four.  Nice big ones as well.

These were in a pack of 6 and a good size. Next time I see them will buy a couple of packs to freeze. Robert

Robert, found some old photos.  I shoved a big lump of butter mixed with garlic, thyme and rosemary up under the breast

These have been flattened as well but don’t really look like it.  With quail I always cut the backbone out with shears and press down to crack the breastbone.
