Lovers of preparations with abundant garlic are going to taste heaven with this recipe: a delicious rabbit with garlic, which we will explain step by step, so that its preparation is very easy.
RABBIT WITH GARLIC RECIPE
As always, I recommend that you leave the chopping up of the rabbit to the butcher. If you do not have one that can help you with this work, we leave you a link that may be useful: how to cut a rabbit.
Traditional recipe of rabbit with garlic
- 1 whole rabbit, chopped
- 200 ml dry white wine
- 2 whole garlic
- Ground black pepper
- 1/2 lemon
- Vegetable oil
The first thing is to cut the rabbit, already clean. If you are lucky enough to have your butcher take care of it, great. If not, this will give us some work at home.
Then we are going to season the rabbit pieces, to taste. I like that the rabbit is very well seasoned, so I pay special attention to rotating the pieces, so that they are seasoned on all sides.
Now we will take care of the garlic, to make it ready and use it later. We are going to peel all the cloves from the two heads of garlic. Then, we will take the teeth of one head and we will chop them into very small pieces.
We are going to crush the rest of the garlic cloves, or pass them through a mortar. For the moment, we will reserve the garlic prepared in both ways.

The next step will be to heat a jet of oil in a pan, to brown the rabbit pieces there. They will have to be rotated so that they cook on all sides, and fry them until they take on a beautiful golden color. This should take 20 minutes or less, considering all the pieces of the rabbit.
We will be removing the pieces, already fried, from the pan. It is very likely that we will have to do the frying in parts. In the end, we will not extinguish the oil, but we will reuse it to cook the garlic that we have chopped into pieces. If the oil that has remained in the pan is too much, we will drain a part to only leave the equivalent of half a cup.
We will cook the garlic over medium-low heat, to make sure that the pieces do not burn. Once the garlic pieces are delicately browned, we will turn off the pan and reserve them, still in the oil.
Do you remember the rest of the garlic, which we had already crushed? Well now we will take care of them, and we will mix them with some spices: a touch of salt, another of pepper, rosemary, bay leaf and also the juice of half a lemon. In the case of herbs, it is best to mix everything in a mortar or grinder, to also chop the herbs. If we do not have this resource, it is best to chop the herbs very finely, before mixing them.
Once a paste is obtained with the previous ingredients, we will add it to the pan with the fried garlic, turned on again. We will add the wine, and we will mix everything well, to let it cook for a few minutes.
