BBQ Quail with Pancetta and Sage

Tobie Puttock

Ingredients:

Recipe brought to you with the help of our friends at Wine Selectors

Serves: 4

  • Four quails
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6-8  leaves of sage, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and cracked pepper
  • 8 strips smoky pancetta
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon halves for serving
  • Lentils and salsa verde for serving

Method:

  1. Preheat a BBQ or grill pan to medium/ high.
  2. Combine the chopped sage and garlic in a mixing bowl.
  3. Remove the spine using kitchen scissors or a sharp knife and flatten the birds using your hand. Lay them out on a chopping board and cover with the sage and garlic mixture using your hands to rub the mixture in with your hands. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes. Wrap two pieces of pancetta around each quail.
  4. Brush the quails with a little olive oil and cook on the preheated BBQ for 6-7 minutes each side (depending on size). Once cooked, allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. I love to serve these with lentils and salsa verde.

Our friends at Wine Selectors suggest pairing this dish with a Shiraz Pinot Noir Blend.
