Kenny Tutt's Buttermilk Fried Quail & Gravy Mayonnaise
This deep-fried quail recipe with gravy mayonnaise is the fancy fried chicken you've been waiting for. Keep your Thermapen on hand for your oil and meat temperatures to get that perfect crispy skin and juicy centre.
I'm a big fan of fried chicken; it would most likely be my final meal if I had to choose. Quail has a more gamey flavour but is still delicate, and the process of frying means the meat remains juicy with a well-spiced golden coating that just sets it off to a new level. A rich gravy mayonnaise makes the perfect sauce for some good old fashion dunking action.
