"Hayman Island chef, Mark Patten, cooks up a storm with barbecued quail served with pickled vegetables." Mix all the marinade ingredients and stir in the quail pieces. Leave to marinate. When ready, barbecue the quail until cooked through.

TO MAKE THE PICKLED VEGETABLES: Mix all the pickling ingredients together and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and add the vegetables - capsicum, cucumber and bok choy. Refrigerate for at least six hours.

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve the hot barbecued quail with salad greens and pickled vegetables.
