Sweetness from marsala and sherry wines is a perfect ingredient for quail meat and for mushrooms. Therefore is is a good idea to combine them together. In this articles I will explain how to make marsala quails with mushrooms. Quail is a small bird, but with the proper side dish can be enough for one portion.

  1. Ingredient for 4 portions:
    • Quails, 4 birds. One bird can make one reasonable portion.
    • Mushrooms, 300-400 gm.
    • Sherry cream, ⅓ cup.
    • Marsala wine, ½ cup.
    • Flour, 5-6 tbsp
    • Clarified butter, 3-4 tbsp.
    • Sage, 4 sprouts. (one sprout for each bird)
    • Dried oregano, 2 tsp
    • Black pepper, 1 tsp

tips and tricks

  • Use standard butter and one tablespoon of vegetable oil instead of clarified butter.
  • These quails where sold without skin, but sometimes they are available with skin. In birds are cooked with skin, then first frying possible can be performed without any butter on very hot skillet, to make lovely crispy skin.
  • Use only good wines, recommended in this recipe, otherwise results will be bad.
