 FOR THE QUAIL:
 In a blender, combine hoisin, soy sauce, oyster sauce, chile paste, garlic,
 ginger and wine and pulse to make a smooth mixture. Whisk together and add
 quail and toss to coat evenly. Marinate refrigerated for at least 2 hours.
 
 Add oil to a depth of 1 inch to a deep pan and heat to 350 degrees (use a
 thermometer). Combine flour, cayenne, 5 spice and salt together on a plate.
 Remove quail from marinade and wipe off excess marinade. Light coat with
 flour mixture and deep fry quail in batches until golden brown and crispy
 (6-8 minutes). Check at leg joint to make sure quail is cooked through. Keep
 quail warm in a low oven and make sure oil returns to 350 degrees before
 adding new ones.
 
 Toss the peppers, jicama, scallions and carrots together with 1/3 cup or so
 of the vinaigrette and arrange attractively on plates. Top with a warm quail
 and serve immediately garnished with cilantro sprigs.    Yield: 6 servings
 
 FOR THE VINIAGRETTE:
 Saute the shallots in the olive oil until soft but not brown. Set aside in a
 mixing bowl to cool. Whisk in the lemon juice, honey and salt and pepper to
 taste.
 Store refrigerated up to 5 days.
 
 Yield: approximately 1 cup
