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.
Lapin grillé auvergnat
1 rabbit, halved lengthwise
60 g butter, melted
8 sprigs of rosemary, about 6 cm long
1 ts black pepper, crushed
fresh lemon juice
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.
Close the aluminum foil to a package.
Grill over char for about 40 minutes, turning the package from time to time.
Open the package at the table and sprinkle lemon juice on halves of rabbit.
