Prepare Rabbit
  • 1 pc rabbit Stall hare, disassemble as shown in article
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • salt I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt
  • 8-10 pinches black pepper
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 pc lemon
  • 1-3 pc glove of garlic
  • 1 bunch thyme I'm using fresh herbs here!
  • 1 bunch rosemary
  • 250 ml dry white win Only for the oven version
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 300 g potatoes
  • Prepare the rabbit parts as described in the article or prepare the rabbit rabbit whole. You can use a roaster or a deep baking tray for the oven version or prepare it on your grill. In the oven, a temperature of 180°C hot air has proved to be the best, pay attention to a strong starting temperature when grilling in the open air and then let the roast cook to the end comfortably with medium grill embers.
