If you make these first, then prepare the kebabs, everything should be ready at the same time.

Ingredients

  • 6 vine leaves
  • 2 boned quail, with leg bones still attached (ask your butcher to do this)
  • 2 tbsp Turkish rice
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp sultanas
  • sea salt and black pepper

Method

Lay out the vine leaves and place one quail on top, skin-side down. Season with salt and pepper. Put the rice, chopped walnuts and sultanas on top of the quail. Place the other quail on top and wrap in the vine leaves, leaving the legs protruding. Wrap in foil and seal both ends. Place on the barbecue and cook for about 40 minutes, turning the package every 10 minutes.
