Recipe by Derek P.

The chichken version of this recipe is popular in Vietnam. Since, I love the taste of rabbit so much and rabbit is not that expensive in France, I tried this recipe with rabbit and it was really good. I'm new to this site, sorry if you find the format and instructions are a bit odd.
