Quail Eggs in Water, Product of Thailand, 15 oz
Quail eggs in water (kai nok kra in Thai) can be used as an ingredient in various Thai dishes and salad. Children especially love this petite-sized egg because of its small size which is easy to eat.
A favorite dish in Thailand, especially after school is raw quail eggs cooked in a khanom krok pan. This after-school (high in good cholesterol) snack is garnished with a sprinkle of Thai white pepper powder and Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce.
Since canned quail eggs are already cooked, instead you can try adding to a Thai Beef Salad recipe or wrap whole in wonton wrappers, deep-fry and serve with Sweet Chili Sauce. Quail eggs can also be added to instant noodle soups, tom yum soup and curries for a surprise twist. Or put quail eggs inside steamed Chinese buns with Chinese sausage for a creamy, rich filling.
Note: Quail eggs should not be given to small children unless cut up or mashed.
