About this recipe:Fried rabbit is a massively underrated dish. Its rich flavor is similar to fried chicken but with a much deeper taste. This dish works great as a ‘quirky’ starter for dinner parties or a main for a keen hunter. The recipe below will feed 2 as a main or 4-5 as a starter.

Get yourself two bowls big enough to dip your cuts of meat into. In one bowl you want your buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk you can use milk mixed with 1 egg) and in the other you want your flour and spices, well mixed of course.
Dip your rabbit meat into the milk, then roll it around in the flour. Make sure you cover it well! Leave the meat in the fridge for about 7-8 hours to allow for it dry into the rabbit.
Heat a pan of cooking oil and fry the rabbit. It’ll take about 25 minutes for the meat to brown off to a lovely golden color. Remove the rabbit and let it drain on a sheet of kitchen paper. Once it's free of oil, it's ready to serve and enjoy!
Wild rabbit is a gamier, deeper taste. If you want a milder taste, try farmed rabbit.
The preparation time can be about 5 minutes if you don't leave the mixture to soak in. It'll mean your rabbit is less crispy and tasty though!
