  • 6 quails
  • 2 tbsp BBQ sauce I used honey garlic
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil dark
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger fresh, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Combine all ingredients, excluding quail and vegetable oil, in large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag and add quail. Seal, and chill 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
  • In an oven proof large skillet or a dutch oven, heat the oil over medium to high heat. Sear the quail on all sides until brown, be careful to turn often, since quails are so small they might burn quickly. Save left over marinade.
  • Roast quail in the oven uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes or until quail is done.
  • In the meantime, pour the marinade in a small pot and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, it should reduce a bit.
  • Pour marinade sauce over quail and serve hot with your favorite side dish.
