Quail is one of the smaller game birds. They have white meat and a mild flavor. They can be cooked like most other game birds in that they can be roasted, grilled, fried, baked, or broiled.
Because they are so small you should typically plan on two or three per serving as an entree or a single quail as an appetizer. You'll often find recipes for butterflied quail - they cook quickly this way and are easier to eat because of their small size.
Like other game birds they take well to a variety of seasonings. Asian flavors are popular like five spice or a soy based sauce. You'll also find fruit sauces like apricot or pomegranate commonly used.
