For the marinade:

  • Bone the quails, add salt and pepper and tie them up so that they do not break while being sautéed.
  • Peel the onions and parboil the carrots, cook for 5 minutes to soften slightly.
  • In the 1.5 dl of oil, sauté the quails and remove them from the fat.
  • Add the carrots, the cooked onions and the garlic cloves with their skin left on, until browned.
  • Add the wine + the vinegar + the water + the spices + the quails, cover and cook on a low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Leave to cool.

Important: the marinade must cover the quails.

Conservation: in the refrigerator about 15 days, always completely covered by the marinade.

For the sauce:

  • Add some of the marinade to an appropriate container and blend adding Xantana little by little.

For the plum purée:

  • Remove the plum seeds then sauté them in the butter, adding the sugar and water. Cook until the plums are soft and the liquid reduces.
  • Blend to a very fine and thick purée and sieve if necessary.


  • Separate the thighs from the breasts.
  • Remove the skin and fillet the breasts into three pieces each.
  • Place the thighs on one side, the breasts on the other and the vegetables between the meats.
  • Pour the sauce over the top.
  • Finally add the purée and decorate with the herbs.
