Quail is tender, flavorful, and quite frankly one of my favorite meats. It's incredibly versatile and is easy to prepare quickly. If you need a quick dinner, quail is the ticket.
¼cupolive oil for browning
1tablespoonfreshly ground pepper
½teaspoonred pepper flakes
In a medium sized bowl, mix all ingredients. Place quail in marinade for about 5 minutes.
Drizzle olive oil into a super hot skillet. When olive oil is shimmering, place quail in skillet for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook the other side for about 2 minutes. Remove the quail from the skillet and serve with Smashed Sweet Potatoes.
