Fried quail and pasta dish is the ideal comfort dish with a touch of elegance. Using only a few good quality ingredients you can create something really special. Seasoning the quail with our chinese salt and pepper mix it creates a beautiful crispy skin with a punch of flavour.

Spices used in this recipe
rub chinese salt n pepper mix into quail or chicken pieces.
Heat oil in pan, and add onion, tomatoe, garlic, chilli and meat. Keerp heat on high stiring frequently to brown meat and caramelise other ingredients. T.his only takes a few minutes so make sure to have the pasta cooked at the same time
cook pasta separately according to instructions on packet. i used fresh ribbon pasta for this recipe but any pasta will do.
serve imediately with fresh coriander leaves.
Ithe sauce should have just enough juice to coat the pasta. Deglazing the pan after you have removed the quail sauce with a few tablespoons of water and drizzling over pasta provides enough flavour to soak into the pasta.
