  • To melt the butter
  • Brown the quails on each side so as to color them on all sides.
  • Add the minced shallot and sweat for a few moments
  • Add thyme, honey and white wine

  • Remove the quails and cook the grapes in the cooking juice for 10 minutes, adding a large knob of butter at the end of cooking

Dressing the quail with grapes is done by placing 1 quail in the center of the plate, the grapes around the quail and the cooking juices to coat everything ...

As an accompaniment we can serve the grape quail with a steamed potato, rice or with fresh taliatelle.
