Remove the backbone from the quail with butchers scissors or with a sharp knife. Marinade the Quail for minimum 2 hours with recipe above. Color the quails for 2 to 3 minutes on a hot BBQ, then move them to the edge of the grill or raise the height of the grill to reduce the temperature and continue to cook fro about 8 minute depending on the size of the quails.
How to serve
Serve with cold beer and salad.
The process of removing the back bone from a bird is called to spachcock, if your not confident to do this, then you may be able to ask your butcher to do it for you. I recommend 150g sized quails for this recipe.
