Humm ... clutching at straws ....

Assiette in French has a couple of meanings. One meaning is "plate", another in the art world means "Found Art" - and object of art made from found objects. Assiette can be a dish made of shellfish or a mixture of shellfish and fish (similar to a stew but not really a bouillabaisse). It can also be a pâté (assiette charcuterie), cuts of cold meat (assiette anglaise), a smoked fish platter (L’assiette Nordique) - or, are you looking for the "Easter Rabbit" recipe.

I'll have to scrounge a bit to see if I can find a recipe for "assiette lapins" in English (how good is your French?) - but if you have a description of the dish that you are seeking a recipe for it sure would help in narrowing down the "correct answer". :roll:

Caine - I'm with you - bet it is either a casserole or a stew.

Not many Google results on the English but see what happens when you search on the French "assiette lapins" ... then check it out!

Assiette of rabbit with purée of carrots
and jus spiked with Chardonnay vinegar
(serves four)

By Anthony Demetre at Cater on Line


2 whole rabbits
2-3tbs garlic confit
Sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
50g crépinette
50g clarified butter
8 sun-dried tomatoes
8 thin slices of Serrano ham
500ml chicken stock

For the sauce
100ml rabbit jus
1 dash Chardonnay vinegar
50ml double cream
Unsalted butter
Chopped tarragon

For the garnish
200g carrot purée
200g braised cabbage
20 glazed baby onions
4 deep-fried celery leaves


Prepare the rabbit by skinning it and removing the legs, shoulders, kidney, liver, head and neck. Reserve head and neck and keep for stock.

Carefully bone saddle. Bone shoulder blade out of shoulder. Stuff boned shoulders with 2tbs garlic confit. Season. Wrap in crépinette and tie with butcher's string to keep in shape.

Sauté rabbit livers with a little clarified butter and season. Open out the boned saddle and cover with the livers (you may need to add extra livers), sun-dried tomatoes, fresh tarragon and parsley. Season and roll tightly. Wrap in Serrano ham and crépinette and tie with butcher's string until tight and firm.

Seal and cover rabbit shoulders in a little clarified butter and then braise for 30 minutes in seasoned chicken stock. Roast the saddle, also in a little clarified butter, and then finish roasting in a medium oven for 10-15 minutes. Rest.

Bring the rabbit jus to the boil and add a splash of Chardonnay vinegar and double cream. Monté with butter and finish with chopped tarragon. Check seasoning.

To assemble, cut string from rabbit shoulder, trim and clean bone. Cutstring from saddle and trim ends. In a hot pan, pan-fry rabbit kidneys, remove, and cut in half. Arrange on a plate with garnishes.

Just reminded me that I haven't made rabbit in ages, and it's a favorite. One of those dishes, though, that I may get no one but hubby and me to eat. My favorite is a German preparation that I cannot remember the name of, but in English you hear it referred to as "jugged hare". Hmm. Where can I find a bunny for supper? I'll have to ask around. Husband loves pureed veggies, though, so if I find my bunny, I may try this one.

Do you all have any idea how fast rabbits multiply? The does can have babies every 6 weeks. As cute and cuddly as they are, they were meant to be food. Tame ones are OK, but if you can get ahold of the wild ones, they are so much tastier.

And yes, they do cry. So buy your rabbit already dressed.

That what I told my husband about the venison. I just want to see chunks of meat, not those big brown eyes.
Deer are beautiful, and we have "pets" that come up to the house all the time. I've seen as many as 10 at one time, browsing in our field.
But there are so many here that they have to be harvested. They are devastating to the farmers.

Here's a rabbit recipe that looks awfully good:

Fricasseed Rabbit Polonaise

* Place a 3 pound cut-up rabbit into a pot of boiling salted water and cook, skimming off scum until no more forms.
* Dice 1 carrot, 1 small parsnip, 1 slice celery, 1 leek, 1/4 head cabbage, 1 onion, and 1 kohlrabi **(all peeled and washed), and add to pot. When boiling resumes, reduce heat and cook covered until meat is tender. Remove rabbit and transfer to heat-proof dish.
* In saucepan, melt 5 Tablespoons butter, stir in 5 Tablespoons flour, and brown slightly. Add enough of the rabbit-vegetable stock to get a nice, pourable sauce, stir until lump-free, simmer several minutes and season to taste with salt, pepper, and sugar.
* Add the soup vegetables and simmer under cover 10 minutes. Then switch off heat and let stand.
* Beat 1 raw egg yolk and stir into sauce until fully blended.
* Sprinkle rabbit with chopped parsley, drench with vegetable sauce, and bake 15 minutes in 375 degree fahrenheit oven.

**Note: Use whatever vegetables you have on hand.

We get by with a little help from our friends
