Quail in vine leaves with grape and hazelnut vinaigrette


You'll need

6 butterflied quail (about 180gm each), halved 12 large vine leaves in brine, rinsed (see note) 300 gm marinated feta To serve: lemon wedges   Lemon and thyme marinade 60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 2 tsp finely chopped thyme leaves 1 lemon, finely grated rind only   Grape and hazelnut vinaigrette 100 gm hazelnuts, roasted, peeled, coarsely chopped 250 gm seedless red grapes, halved 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp sherry vinegar 1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method

  • For lemon and thyme marinade, combine all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and season to taste.
  • 02
  • Add quail to marinade, turn to coat evenly, cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, pat vine leaves dry with absorbent paper.
  • 03
