    Directions

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