Roast Quail Stuffed With Prunes

My friend “Mama” has sent me a recipe for roast quail stuffed with prunes that she says tastes delicious and is very simple to make.


  • 6 Quail
  • 12 half dried prunes soaked in a little armagnac.


  1. Baste quail with a little olive oil.
  2. Put prunes that have been soaked in almanac into the body cavity.
  3. Roast in a shallow dish  at 200 degs for about 20 mins.
  4. Serve with a mixed green salad and dressing.

This dish can work well as either a starter or the main course of a meal.

Enjoy – let me know if you try this dish and I’ll pass on your thoughts to “Mama”.
