To maintain the freshness and quality of Whole Quail, it is recommended to store them in the refrigerator at a temperature of 32°F to 40°F (0°C to 4°C). Keep the quail in their original packaging or place them in an airtight container to prevent any exposure to air or odors. Properly stored, Whole Quail can maintain their freshness for up to 2-3 days. If you plan to store them for a longer period, you can also freeze the quail. Wrap each quail individually in plastic wrap or place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen Whole Quail can retain their quality for approximately 3-4 months. Thaw the quail in the refrigerator before cooking for the best results.
This pack contains 1 piece.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Here’s cooking instruction for Quail Whole:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Rinse the quail under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
3. Season the quail generously with salt and pepper, both inside and out. You can also add additional herbs and spices of your choice, such as thyme, rosemary, or garlic powder, for added flavor.
4. Heat a skillet or oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Add a small amount of oil or butter and let it melt.
5. Place the quail in the hot pan, breast side down, and sear it for about 2-3 minutes until it turns golden brown. Flip the quail and sear the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes.
6. Once the quail is seared, transfer the pan to the preheated oven. Roast the quail for about 12-15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Cooking time may vary depending on the size of the quail, so it’s best to use a meat thermometer to ensure doneness.
7. Remove the quail from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a moist and tender result.
8. Serve the quail whole as a main course, or you can also carve it into smaller pieces if desired.

Enjoy your deliciously cooked quail whole!
