Preparation method

  • Take the quail eggs and carefully separate the egg yolks from the whites. The whites can be saved for another use.
  • Put the yolks in separate little bowls or cups and pour in the grape seed oil to cover completely.
  • Before serving, pour salt water heated to 85°C into the bowls with the quail eggs and the oil and leave to draw for about 40 seconds.
  • Finally, gently take the yolks out of the bowls.

Serving suggestions
