Sesame Rabbit Tajine

« In this recipe the rabbit takes on the flavors of oriental spices. Rabbit always reminds me of my grandmother's recipes. Like she always says, "a good rabbit is a rabbit that can be eaten without a knife". To follow her advice, feel free to let the dish simmer for a long time over a low heat. »
