From time to time it is worth going for some rabbit meat. It is almost completely free from fat so it is extremely healthy.
One might think that rabbit meat is cooked quite quickly. Nothing could be more wrong. For this meat to become tender, it must spend a good amount of time on the heat.
When buying a rabbit, regardless of its size, people usually prepare the legs or cook it whole and then separate it into parts.
Another part it’s worth preparing a tasty dish from is the loin and then there is no need to cook the whole rabbit at once.

Served with rice they make a light and tasty dinner.
