➡️ Tips for the fried rabbit recipe in sour cream sauce 🔎

The rabbit is not among the most consumed meats in many parts of the world and, therefore, the food recipes that contain this ingredient are not very many. However, there are also countries where the rabbit, especially the farm rabbit, is commonly consumed and people appreciate refined recipes with rabbit meat. Among the countries where a lot of rabbits are consumed, I mention Spain, Italy but also the UK.

Among the most popular recipes with rabbits are rabbit stew, fried rabbit in the pan, and rabbit cooked in the oven.

On this page, I’ll share with you a fried rabbit recipe that I like very much. I eat rabbits as many times as I can since both I and my daughter love this extremely delicious meat!

This fried rabbit recipe is, actually, a combination between a rabbit stew and a fried rabbit in the pan. As you can watch in the video, the rabbit is seared, then boiled, and finally, served in a tarragon cream sauce.

Even though it may seem complicated and does not require much time, in reality, the fried rabbit recipe is very easy to cook and does not require much time spent in the kitchen given that, while the food is boiling, you can do other things.

Being quite simple, I don’t have to share many secrets in regard to this fried rabbit recipe. I’ll underline that there is important to cut the whole rabbit into smaller pieces for better cooking. Also, I suggest boiling the fried rabbit pieces over a very low temperature to allow the meat to soften inside.

Finally, I recommend using a very good quality heavy cream to avoid turning sour when it comes in contact with the high temperature in the pan.

Enjoy cooking the fried rabbit recipe in a tarragon cream sauce!

Wild leporids comprise a small portion of global rabbit-meat consumption. Domesticated descendants of the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) that are bred and kept as livestock (a practice called cuniculture) account for the estimated 200 million tons of rabbit meat produced annually.[63]

Approximately 1.2 billion rabbits are slaughtered each year for meat worldwide.[64] In 1994, the countries with the highest consumption per capita of rabbit meat were Malta with 8.89 kg (19 lb 10 oz), Italy with 5.71 kg (12 lb 9 oz), and Cyprus with 4.37 kg (9 lb 10 oz), falling to 0.03 kg (1 oz) in Japan. The figure for the United States was 0.14 kg (5 oz) per capita. The largest producers of rabbit meat in 1994 were China, Russia, Italy, France, and Spain.[65] Rabbit meat was once a common commodity in Sydney, Australia, but declined after the myxomatosis virus was intentionally introduced to control the exploding population of feral rabbits in the area.

In the United Kingdom, fresh rabbit is sold in butcher shops and markets, and some supermarkets sell frozen rabbit meat. At farmers’ markets there, including the famous Borough Market in London, rabbit carcasses are sometimes displayed hanging, unbutchered (in the traditional style), next to braces of pheasant or other small game.

Rabbit meat is a feature of Moroccan cuisine, where it is cooked in a tajine with “raisins and grilled almonds added a few minutes before serving”.[66] In China, rabbit meat is particularly popular in Sichuan cuisine, with its stewed rabbit, spicy diced rabbit, BBQ-style rabbit, and even spicy rabbit heads, which have been compared to spicy duck neck.[63] Rabbit meat is comparatively unpopular elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific.
