WHB #88: Lapin grillé auvergnat – Grilled rabbit

Astrid from Paulchens Foodblog is hosting this week Weekend Herb Blogging. And again I’m featuring rosemary, I know a little bit boring, but it is at the moment my favorite herb.

Some days ago I bought the first rabbit of my life. I never have eaten rabbit before. When buying it my objective was to grill it. It was quite difficult to find an adequate recipe. It seems rabbit is not really suitable for grilling. Finally I found a recipe, and it was delicious, perhaps not so good as a stew, but ok.

Butter a thick aluminum foil. If you don’t have a thick aluminum foil just take 2.
Arrange half of the sprigs of rosemary on the aluminum foil.
Butter halves of rabbit, season with salt and pepper.
Place the rabbit on sprigs of rosemary.
Arrange rest of the sprigs of rosemary on top.

  1. Your rabbit looks awesome! I love this healthy meat and rosemary is so delicious! Those beans seem very tasty (what’s the recipe for them?)… Yummy!

  2. This looks lovely!

    I am always on the look-out for different rabbit recipes, and this is one I definitely havent seen before! So simply! It looks wonderful! I will definitely try it! =)

  3. Your Rabbit entry in WHB is great. Here in Australia rabbits are a pest, but do you think they are easy to get hold of, no. If I get lucky to get them in I will try this recipe. Thankyou. P.S I have seen lots of other events held by you and your blog I would love to enter at some stage when I find time.

  4. I love rabbit but can’t convince mon mari that he would!
    Yours looks lovely and very tender and juicy. I’d love to try your recipe… Maybe I’ll just get one and tell him it’s a skinny chicken….

  5. I’ve been on vacation so I’m barely reading some of the entries from last week! When I was a kid we used to raise rabbits and the meat was delicious. Sounds good with rosemary.
