Butter Quail has to be my favorite appetizer!  I just don’t like paying for it at the restaurants… LOL.  It’s always 1 of most expensive items on the appetizer menu and the portion is very small (at most 2 quails cut in half).  I remember the last time I ordered was in 2014, right before I had my youngest son.  It was at Rice Paper Restaurant (at Eden Center) in Virginia.  I was very pregnant and hungry and I think I even licked the plate at the end.

It’s actually very easy to make Butter Quails at home.  The hassle that I hate is deep frying it in oil.  I hate cleaning it and always feel so wasteful using a ton of oil.  And not to mention the guilt of eating deep frying food.  Ever since we had the Air Fryer I realized it was so much easier and healthier to make this dish.  There is not a whole lot to clean afterward and you feel better knowing your food wasn’t soaked in oil for a long period of time.  I hope you will find this recipe easy and delicious!
