Looking for an alternative preparation for quail? Or perhaps not tried cooking quail before? This is a quick and simple recipe may well be what you’re after. It uses shichimi – a Japanese 7-spice mix including ground red chilli, ground sansho (Japanese pepper) and roasted orange peel. It can be found in most Asian supermarkets, but if you can’t get your hands on some,you can simply make up your own mix of chilli flakes, white pepper and orange zest – which works equally well.
