Rabbit en papillote

    50 min

    This is a healthy dish. The rabbit is very tender and delicious, not to mention lean and healthy. Baking in a parchment parcel, or en papillote, ensures the meat stays terrifically moist. It doesn't take very long to make and you can also prepare this dish in advance.
