    Tonight for dinner we made tempura fried quail eggs. Used a homemade dipping sauce to go with it. I asked one of our customers how she makes her quail eggs and so we had to try.... Very good! you got to try it! its worth the effort to make them this way. My family enjoyed it including the 18 month old

    Tempura batter
    1 cup flour
    1 egg
    ice cold water it has to be real cold just put some ice in a glass with some water stir till cold. Mix egg and flour and pour in water till batter thickness is to your liking don't over work it.

    Boil quail eggs 3-4 mins peel shell off. put eggs on bamboo skewers roll in batter and then roll in breadcrumbs or pankos flour and deep fry. remove when brown to your liking salt to taste

    Dipping Sauce

    3 Tablespoons of orange marmalade
    1 Tablespoon rice vinegar

    Mix together and dip your eggs in the sauce can also use sweet and sour sauce as well

    Now I can't wait until mine start to lay! That sounds excellent! Mine are only 4 weeks old, so I am not getting eggs yet, but hopefully soon!

    my wife said she wants me to make a horseradish sauce for it next time. I might try the sauce they use with the blooming onion at outback
