Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Rabbit
Yes, you read that right, Rabbit. My hubby loves rabbit. Even though we live in the woods of Northern Wisconsin, my hubby isn’t a hunter or fisherman for that matter but he does have friends who are, which is great for us. This way we always have a supply of venison, rabbit, trout, and perch. His buddies are always willing to give us all the small game, venison and fish we can eat. In exchange, all they ask for us is something sweet to eat once in awhile. I’m okay with that. Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Rabbit is super delicious.
One of the best ways to prepare rabbit I think, is to first of all marinade the rabbit preferable overnight. Rabbit gets very tender and very tasty when you marinade it. Any kind of marinade seems to work well. We like to use a bottled marinade and our favorite brand to use is: Robert Rothschild. You can certainly make your own marinade but I prefer to use one of the many fantastic marinades you can find on the market. Another great option is to use any bottled vinaigrette available, as a marinade. We also like World Harbour
Our favorite way to cook rabbit is in the slow cooker. Cooking rabbit after it’s been marinaded overnight in the slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours is an excellent way to cook rabbit. The flavor of the marinated rabbit is super delicious and the rabbit becomes “fall off the bone” delicious.
