Another delicious bite, provide cocktail sticks and maybe serve them on a bed of watercress.
First cook the quail eggs in boiling salted water for 3 minutes. Drain and drop into a bowl of cold water. Peel, toss in a little extra virgin olive oil, then roll in cumin and sprinkle with sea salt.
Serve on sprigs of watercress so they can be enjoyed together as they are speared with a cocktail stick.
