Prepare steps 1 and 2, then cover and refrigerate the quails for up to 2 days.
Using kitchen scissors, cut each quail along the backbone, from the neck end to the parson’s nose. Open each quail, place on to a cutting board, skin-side up, and press firmly with your hand to flatten. Slash the breast skin a couple of times with a knife to ensure even cooking.
Mix the marinade ingredients together with a fork. Brush evenly over each quail, pressing into the cuts, and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
Preheat a grill to hot. Grill the quail on a foil-lined grill pan, turning once, for 12–15 minutes, or until golden brown and the juices show no trace of pink when pierced.
Serve hot, with lime wedges for squeezing.
