      This is a top recipe. The only thing we would suggest is that doubling the amount of the marinade makes for much easier wetting of quail. The spicy salt is delicious and we will be trying it on other foods. Two quail each with potato croquettes made this a great main meal for two

      Really easy, if you have quail, really tasty. I forgot to add the lemon, we ate the pieces as is. They cook very quickly, so be careful. Sugar is missing from the list, but in the recipe, so I guessed on that one. Nice different way to eat quail.
