Char-grilled quail with a butter and thyme sauce
- 2 whole quail
- 1 bundle of Thyme
- 50 grams butter
- Sea salt flakes
- Olive oil
Butterfly the quails by cutting through the back bone and then push down on the quail to flatten it out.
Melt butter and then add the thyme leaves with salt to taste. Stir ingredients together and then spoon over the quail. Let marinate for 30 minute.
On a hot BBQ grill place the quail bone side down. After 5 minutes reduce the heat to low and turn the quail. Cook for another 5 minute then turn again to cook for another 5 minutes. Take off once cooked through and plate as desired. The quail can either be cut up or served whole.
