We review the pieces of rabbit removing some remaining skin or fat, season them and pass them in flour. While doing this, put five tablespoons of olive oil in a low saucepan and brown the five unpeeled garlic cloves in it.

As we flour each slice, we add it to the casserole. Don't worry if they don't all fit. As they are browned, they will decrease a little and in the end they will all be able to accommodate. We fry the slices well until they have an appetizing color and are well made inside. It will take about twenty minutes to brown all of them, turning them continuously until they are as in the images.

At that time, we cut a lemon in half and squeeze it by hand, spreading the juices over each slice. We add the glass of wine and the broth and raise the heat so that the sauce begins to reduce.

Gripping the handles of the saucepan with both hands, -be careful not to burn ourselves- we shake the saucepan and give it circular movements. Thus the sauce is linked while the rest of the liquid evaporates. In two or three minutes, that sauce has permeated the slices that are juicy and full of flavor. Sprinkle with a little parsley and at the table to eat it very hot.
