These Frenched Quail Legs (aka Quail Lollipops or Quail Tulips), have had the bones scraped down to the leg meat and the skin pushed to one side, giving them a playful yet elegant appearance. They can be fried similar to chicken wings or quickly pan seared. Perfect for appetizers and hors d'oeuvres. Skin on. Certified Halal.

Quail are small game birds with light colored, tender meat and a delicate, sweet flavor that's distinctively nutty. The Couturnix (or Common) breed is the one preferred by European chefs. Cage free, 100% vegetarian diet, no antibiotics or growth hormones. These quail have been air chilled which better preserves the bird's flavor, lets the meat absorb marinade better and is more environmentally friendly than the water chilling that is used for most poultry. Quail meat is enjoyed in a host of European, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisines, and pairs well with a variety of spices and flavors.

One hundred and twenty legs, six 20-Leg packs, ~8 lbs total. Origin: Spain
