Although Sandy’s is primarily a fishmongers, and a very good one at that, they also do a range of poultry and game, sausages and even cheeses.
Our first purpose was to pick up some fresh fish for our dinner that evening. We did just that, purchasing some cod fillets, which were excellent coated in seasoned flour and pan-fried. We also got some home-made chipolatas, and some frozen whitebait.
However, this sign caught my eye before even entering the shop. It’s been some time since I last enjoyed a good rabbit dish, and it’s long been a favorite of mine. Now was the time to rectify that omission.
The rabbit was already skinned, and gutted, so that made it easier, although I’d have been willing to do these tasks if necessary. As it was all I had to do was cut the rabbit up. Typically, one ends up with five portions. Two hind legs, two front legs, and the saddle, or back.
Into the frypan went the portions, after covering them with flour seasoned with garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper. Browned on all sides, and then added to the crock pot. A little wine was used to clear the meat juices from the pan, and this was added to the crock pot along with the rest of the wine.
Served with mashed potatoes.

A change is as good as a rest, it has been often said.
Along with a pot of freshly ground, brewed coffee, it was a most enjoyable breakfast.
Now if only, kippers didn’t have so many darn bones!
Here’s hoping y’all have a great weekend.
