I got a couple of domestic pen raised rabbits from my deer processor, I plan on frying them up today. Question is should I par boil the rabbits before frying or are the domestic rabbits more tender than wild ones?

Just dont want to cook up some tough azz rabbits. Thanks

I've never boiled them. I'll let them soak in buttermilk and seasoning overnight then dip in Louisiana chicken fry and put straight into the fryer. They always come out great.

I have fried quite a bit of rabbit, your right, they are tough as hell if you fry them. Soaking them in buttermilk over night helps.

I have never boiled them then fried, but maybe it could work. I usually braise them now and do rabbit dumplings or stew.

I like to slow cook them on the bbq while glazing with bbq sauce (drowning is probably a better word to describe it!). Never had tough rabbit this way and taste better than store bought chicken done the same way.

Thanks guys. I remember my mom frying rabbit that me and my dad shot when I was a kid. They were tough and chewy. Mom wasnt the best cook thats for sure.

Put the rabbits back in freezer(still frozen solid). Gonna take em out thursday and put in an ice and saltwater brine for 24 hrs, then in seasoned buttermilk for a day.

Saw a guy on youtube par boil them before he fried em, never par boiled anything, thats y i posted question.

What oil or grease do you prefer to fry in? Bacon grease, lard, shortening, oils...........

Was thinking of doing bacon grease and lard. Heart stoppers.

If pen raised I would fry them up just like you would chicken no need for all the extra stuff. Soak in buttermilk as long as you can coat in flour fry in olive oil.

"If pen raised I would fry them up just like you would chicken no need for all the extra stuff." I agree, pen raised are ok just like they are. My wife browns the outside in the frying pan and then puts a lid on then and lets it steam for a while. That's some mighty good eating.

Fricasee is the way you should go. Flour them, brown on both sides in bacon grease, dump in some chopped onions, little bit of season salt, some pepper, close to cover with some chicken broth, scrape all the stuff loose in your skillet, add about a cup or so of cream and simmer with the lid on for an hour or so. Couple hot biscuits and some potatoes on the side and your are in for fall off the bone good eaten.

buttermilk also helps reduce the "gamey" taste to as well
