3 cups looing sauce -- see * note
4 medium quails -- split in half
4 cups peanut oil -- for deep-frying

Preparation / Directions:

* Note: See the "Looing Sauce" recipe which is included in this collection. Bring the Looing Sauce to a boil and put in the quails. Bring back to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes. Remove quails from the sauce, drain and pat dry with paper towels. Deep-fry in oil at 375 degrees until golden, about 3 minutes. Do not overcook. This recipe serves 6 to 8 as part of a Chinese meal. Comments: This is a delicious dish. Since the bird is simmered first in the looing sauce it is very moist, even after a quick deep-frying.
