Baked Semi-boneless Quail

  • Serves 4
  • 4 TQF semi-boneless quail, thawed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 TBSP butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.  Season the quail with salt and pepper, then rub with the softened butter.  Place on a metal baking sheet and place on the top rack of the oven.  Roast for 10-12 minutes, basting with the melted butter.  Remove from the oven and check for doneness – the quail should be firm, but tender, with a slight amount of pink in the breasts.  Rest for 5-10 minutes, then serve.
