Rabbit Stew with Coconut Cream

Rating: Unrated

This is an old recipe that comes from Colombia. My family loves when I cook this. Rabbit meat is very low in fat and can be dry-tasting, so it marries well with coconut cream. It is best to cook the rabbit gently till it is falling off the bone. Serve with rice.

Authentic Paella Valenciana

Rating: Unrated

I lived in Spain for two years where I was taught the art of making the Paella which originated in Valencia. I haven't found anything on here which is even close to authentic, so I thought I would add this recipe for those who would like to try a taste of Spain. First and foremost you will need a special paella pan called a paellera or just a paella. Trust me after you taste this you'll be glad you bought the special pan.

I'm Palestinian and my mother would cook this for special guests. A very exotic twist to cooking rabbit with sage, olives, artichokes and served alongside rosemary potatoes.

Grilled Garlic Rabbit

Rabbit and garlic-a very different take on your classic grilling option. Always a great conversation starter, these bunnies will make your mouth water! We use rabbits that were hunted in the great Southwest desert during rabbit season. However, a lot of local stores sell rabbit as well. The 'wild hares' here are smaller and leaner than their supermarket counterparts, so I use two smaller rabbits and adjust the cook time during rabbit season or one large rabbit in the off time.

Hasenfeffer (Sour Rabbit Stew)

Rating: Unrated
10
Original German rabbit stew recipe passed down from my great-grandmother who immigrated to US in 1889. This is a lot of work to make but well worth it. It is an acquired taste dish; once hooked, you can't get enough. Serve with fresh mashed potatoes and celery sticks. Use the stock as gravy for mashed potatoes. Always tastes better as leftovers. Hope you enjoy!

Inspiration and Ideas

Quinoa with Rabbit and Kale

Naturally gluten-free! Threw this together last night and it was a hit. Quinoa is high in protein and you could totally omit meat and use this as more of a side dish. So many choices.

Smoked Rabbit

Rabbit meat has the tendency to get dry when smoked, so you'll want to plan ahead and not skip the brining process. First bite in and you'll see that it was worth the wait.
