Surely you have seen on TV the nice advertisement of the boy who calls his grandmother saying that he has bought a rabbit and does not know how to prepare it.

Well, these are our proposals.

1. Rabbit with garlic

It is perhaps the most popular recipe to make with this ingredient. The rabbit with garlic is a traditional and easy recipe in which after frying the rabbit with garlic in a wide frying pan, we add white wine and let it cook, until we combine a delicious and unforgettable sauce. If you have never done it, it is the perfect recipe to discover this delicious meat.

How to make Rabbit with garlic

Difficulty: Medium
  • Total time 40 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 30 m

We review the pieces of rabbit removing any remaining skin or fat, season them and pass them through flour. While we do this, we 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 brown, they will dwindle a bit and in the end everyone will be able to accommodate. We fry the slices well until they have a desirable color and are well done on the inside. It will take about twenty minutes to brown all of them, turning them continuously until they are as in the images.

At that moment, we cut a lemon in half and squeezed it by hand, distributing the juices over each slice. Add the wine glass and the broth glass and turn up the heat so that the sauce begins to reduce.

Gripping the handles of the saucepan with both hands, -with care not to burn ourselves- we shake the saucepan and give it circular movements. This way, the sauce binds while the rest of the liquid evaporates. In two or three minutes, that sauce has impregnated the slices that are juicy and full of flavor. Sprinkle with a little parsley and put on the table to eat it hot.
