- In a bowl, season the rabbit with some salt, taking into account that the pepper sauce is already salty, especially if it is homemade.
- Add the chopped garlic, chili pepper, pepper sauce and bay leaves.
- Mix very well, drizzle with white wine and marinate for 2 hours.
- In a saucepan, heat the olive oil, and fry the drained rabbit pieces with the bay leaves.
- Let it fry over medium heat for about 20 minutes and stir occasionally so that it doesn't burn.
- After 20 minutes and when the rabbit is golden brown, add the marinade.
- Fry for another 10 minutes and stir occasionally to avoid sticking.
- After 10 minutes, turn off the heat, drizzle with a little lemon juice and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.
