Tip - Buying rabbit
If you can’t buy the legs separately, buy a whole rabbit and remove the back legs or ask your butcher to do it for you. Freeze the rest of the rabbit for another recipe like the Rabbit cacciatore (see 'Goes well with' section).
Tip - Types of rabbit
The type of rabbit available is what separates the home from the professional kitchen. Restaurants generally use a larger farmed rabbit leg for this recipe. However, most butchers and supermarkets sell smaller, gamier wild rabbit, so that’s most likely what you’ll be cooking with. When using wild rabbit, look for the biggest legs possible and roast them for 20 mins.
