Marinated Fried Rabbit

Rabbit reminds me of Greece, of vacations to Crete where both of my parents are from. It’s a popular Mediterranean dish and is most commonly prepared fried or in a tomato based stew “stifado” with pearl onions, vinegar and red wine. The following recipe is quick and easy, a great way to try cooking rabbit for the first time.
