  • Crisscross the figs with an X and open( I forgot!)---
  • you're ready

  • test your triple sec to make sure it has not spoiled
  • --------------
  • dredge the quail in flour seasoned with kosher salt and pepper
  • add quail to pan
  • keep triple sec close and ready
  • add figs

    Perfect! The triple Sec adds a nice citrus flavor. I will be making this in the fall. (That is when a local friend said they will be ready) He raises them.

    Thank you! Great Presentation. *5*

    This sounds really good. I've never cooked with fresh figs before so here is a good reason to try them. Thanks for the recipe. Brianna

    Great recipe! I used to have quail as a girl. My brothers were hunters so we had lots of "game" meals. We usually fixed it like Momo spoke of... No triple sec allowed in my "momma's" house so no luck there but now....hmmmm...lol...
