Nice light summer fresh flavours to this rabbit dish. Suitable for a summer dish rather than the usual winter heavy rabbit dishes seen more commonly. There are only 2 of us so we use leftovers to make delicious steamed rabbit dumplings, rabbit soup or pie. I do it in the slow cooker so easy, tender and ready when you get home from work. If you find most rabbit dishes "too heavy" this is the dish for you! Could equally be done with chicken. This is suitable for low fat,low calorie, low GI, diabetic, low carb, gluten free, high protein, diary free and egg free diets.
Leftovers make great steamed dumplings - use gow gee pastry and squeeze out moisture from mixture when preparing them and remove potatoes and whole onions. Place 1 tsp mixture on centre pastry, fold over to 1/2 moon and press edges together with a fork. They freeze well (place on plastic wrap and between layers) Steam for 5-10 mins and serve on their own or with a few drops of a fresh light sweet pepper sauce. Could also make into rabbit pie by putting into small pie dishes, toppping with puff pastry and cooking in the oven
