Pan fried quails
Serves 2

4 quails
4 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 bay leaf
3 dl white wine
Salt and chili pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying

Start by opening the quails in the back with the help of scissors. Once clean, put in a deep container and season with garlic, salt, chili pepper and white wine. Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge for about two hours to gain flavor.
In a skillet, heat the olive oil and fry the quails on both sides, until the meat is cooked and the skin is golden and crispy. Remove the quails from the pan and add the liquid from the marinade. Simmer for a few minutes, put the quails back into the skillet and serve immediately.
