- 4 semi-boneless quail

- Olive oil, for grilling
- Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat grill to medium heat. Fill the cavity of the quail with the uncashed boudin, and season with salt and pepper. Grill 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Brush with oil to aid in browning.
Place all ingredients into a non-reactive saucepan and heat on medium high. Reduce by ¼. Reserve warm.
Heat oil in large skillet. Once shimmering add garlic and shallots, and cook for 30 seconds. Add greens and stir to combine. Once they begin to wilt, add vinegar and salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
Arrange greens on plates, top with quail, and a generous amount of honey!
