Recipe notes
These Greek-style boneless quail grill up in a flash. The plump, tender quail can be served as an appetizer or over salad greens for a light dinner.
RECIPE Preparation
  1. Rub quail with olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Sprinkle lightly with rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat a gas or charcoal grill until very hot. Place quail breast side down and grill just until skin is nicely browned, 1 to 1 ½ minutes, then turn, close lid, and continue grilling until cooked through, 2 ½ to 3 minutes. Remove and serve with lemon slices.
