Salted quail eggs are super easy, you need only to pay attention to two points:
one is to put the quail eggs in the salt water for 1 hour in advance.
Second, it is best to choose coarse sea salt. If the salt is fine, will absorb more easily and can be too salty.
Another note is that the quail eggs need to be buried in the sea salt for low-temperature baking.
