Recipes with rabbit, protein-rich and low-fat meat


Rabbit meat falls into the category of white meat. Meat scents in protein, but low in fat. It is very digestible, tender and tasty and lends itself to being cooked in many different ways, but all equally tasty. Each Italian region has its own recipes and variants, but it can be said that rabbit meat is eaten throughout the country, although consumption compared to previous years is always lower. It is not a very cheap meat and also for this is left behind compared to similar meats but from the lower cost (see chicken or turkey meat)
