Every now and then I luck up and one of my hunter friends gives me some deer, duck or quail. A friend of mine brought me some quail. I simply grilled it seasoned with sea salt and black pepper. I served as sides butternut squash and asparagus.
When cooking butternut squash I prefer to bake it. However, if you don't have time, you can cut it up and remove the seeds and boil it which will be much faster. After cooking it I seasoned with olive oil, sea salt, and a mix of nuts. The nuts included almonds, pumpkin seeds, and pecans. I toast them on low heat in a pan on the stove. It does not take long so be careful not to burn them. If you drizzle just a bit of olive oil on the nuts and some sea salt they are very tasty!
I grilled the asparagus as well next to the quail. The quail takes about 15 minutes and some change. The asparagus about 3-5 minutes. After they are fork tender remove, drizzle with olive oil, season with sea salt and a squirt of lemon.
