Whole Quail can be roasted, smoked, baked, sauteed, barbequed, braised, pan roasted, broiled or fried. They can also be stuffed. Because they are so lean, they're often wrapped in bacon to keep them moist. No giblets included. 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.

Twenty four quails, six 4-Bird packs, ~ 8 lbs total. Origin: Spain
