Based on a Bill Grainger recipe, I love this quail dish served with couscous salad and chilli mint harissa.
Grind the garlic, spices, salt and pepper with a mortar and pestle until a paste, then add olive oil. Place quails in a shallow dish and rub with the spice mix with this marinade of spices and oil. Leave overnight.
Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Heat an ovenproof frying pan over high heat until very hot. Sear the quails, skin side down in the pan for 2 minutes. Turn the quails over and cook for a further 2 minutes. Bake in the oven for 8 mins. Remove from the oven and leave in the pan for a further 10 minutes. Serve on couscous salad drizzled with harissa and pan juices.
For the salad, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place the couscous (fork it through to break it up), tomatoes, cucumber, shallots, mint and parsley in a bowl and mix well. Pour dressing over salad and mix again.
For the harissa, combine all the ingredients, except the mint in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl, and add chopped mint before serving.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
