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 fry the rabbit with garlic in a large frying pan, add white wine and let it cook, until we bind a delicious and unforgettable sauce. If you have never done it, it is the perfect recipe to discover this delicious meat.


We review the pieces of rabbit removing any rest of skin or fat, we season them and we 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 eventually 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 time, we cut a lemon in half and squeeze it by hand distributing the juices above 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 it on the table to eat it hot.
