Howdy folks! 😊

Really excited to share this recipe with you today, of my Roasted Rabbit.

Not very common in these parts, but I’m glad to see a few people giving Rabbit meat a go, these days. 😊 💪🏾

Aside from the fact that it comes at a premium since it’s not that widely available + once folks get over the perception that it’s ‘only a Pet’ – then folks will be ready to uncover the deliciousness that is Rabbit meat! 😋

Cooked here with some fresh herbs and olive oil, this falling-off-the-bone meat dish will leave you wanting more! 😋

Ready to give this a try? 😊 Here’s the recipe below 👇🏾:

Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1 Medium Rabbit (1.2 kg)

  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Olive oil

  • 2 Teaspoons Salt

  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

  • 2 Teaspoons fresh Thyme

  • 2 Teaspoons fresh Rosemary

  • 1 Teaspoon smoked Paprika

  • 2 Tablespoons White wine Vinegar

  • 1 large Onion

  • 1 large Green Pepper

  • 1 large Red Pepper

  • 2 large cloves of Garlic

  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce


  • So this is what a whole Rabbit looks like 😊. If it was frozen, make sure it thaws out, and comes to room temperature. Then proceed to cut it into your desired pieces, and place them in a bowl. 😊
  • Finely chop your fresh Rosemary, Thyme and Garlic before adding them to the marinade. 😊
  • Add all the ingredients to the bowl, including the fresh herbs. 😊
  • Mix, and rub the meat until the Rabbit is well coated. 😊
  • Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for at least 2 hours. 😊
  • While the Rabbit marinates, cut your peppers and onion into medium sized pieces and line the bottom of an oven prof dish. Drizzle lightly with some olive oil and sprinkle with salt. 😊
  • Transfer the Rabbit pieces to the baking dish and arrange over the peppers. 😊
  • Cover with foil, and bake in the oven for 1 hour at 350 degrees celcius. After 1 hour, remove the foil and allow it to broil uncovered for 15 minutes. Then the dish is ready! 😊
  • Remove the pieces from the baking dish, and arrange them on your serving dish. Garnish with fresh thyme and the cooked peppers. Serve and enjoy! 😊
  • Had mine with Butternut, veg and gravy. 😊👌🏾😋
