For four persons



  • 12 quail eggs
  • 2tbsp cooking oil or olive oil
  • 2tbsp black pepper coarse ground
  • 1tsp salt or to taste


Method of cooking

Boil the quail eggs (3 minutes), let them cool and peel off the shell (Note: Don’t try to boil fresh quail eggs, you won’t be able to peel them. Use 3 week old eggs). Score the eggs (make tiny cuts on them with a sharp knife). Place the eggs in a bowl. Mix the salt and pepper and sprinkle on the eggs. Also sprinkle a little water over the lot and mix well. Heat the oil in a fry pan or a wok, when hot, add the eggs and fry on medium heat for about 10 minutes with frequent stirring.

You can serve this simple to make wonderful spicy meal as a side dish but I would recommend it as an appetizer served on a plate bedded with chopped lettuce.
