How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a grill. In a bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the pomegranate molasses, the 1 tablespoon of oil and the mint; season with salt.

Step 2    

Rub olive oil all over the quail. Season with salt and pepper and grill, breast side down, over high heat until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn the quail and grill until the breast meat is pink (for medium), about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the quail to plates.

Step 3    

Add the spinach and pomegranate seeds to the dressing and toss. Serve the salad with the quail.

Serve With

Creamy Celery Root Skordalia.

Suggested Pairing

The meat's sweet, slightly rich flavor and the juicy pomegranate seeds in the spinach salad are delicious with an elegant red Burgundy.
