  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 rabbit, cut into 8 pieces (about 3 1/4 pounds)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Sprinkle the rabbit with salt and pepper and sear until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatoes and white wine. Cover and simmer until the rabbit is cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes. Stir in the herbs and top with lemon slices to finish.
