What do you do with rabbit parts? Recently purchased a rabbit to cook in a paella and found it contained the liver and heart, etc. Don't want to discard but don't know what to do with them. They're waiting in the freezer. No cat or dog in our home.

Rabbit Pie
Ingredients: Leftover cooked rabbit meat, puff pastry, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, herbs (thyme, rosemary), chicken or vegetable broth, flour, butter, salt, and pepper.
Instructions: Sauté onions, carrots, and celery in butter. Add flour to create a roux, then gradually add broth to form a thick sauce. Mix in the shredded rabbit meat and herbs. Pour into a pie dish, cover with puff pastry, and bake until golden.
Rabbit Risotto
Ingredients: Leftover cooked rabbit meat, arborio rice, chicken broth, white wine, onions, garlic, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, herbs (like thyme), salt, and pepper.
Instructions: Cook onions and garlic in olive oil, add rice, and toast slightly. Deglaze with white wine, then gradually add chicken broth while stirring. When almost done, add the rabbit meat to warm through. Finish with Parmesan cheese and herbs.

However, if you don't want to roast your rabbit :D, and have been taking care of it, you can find multiple good fruits recipes and information about foods here: https://www.petpediapro.com/

Thanks!! The rabbit is gone, but I can probably use a rabbit substitute and one of Tiggy Bee's references. Don't have any lamb lights but who knows what the future might hold?

Damn, I would chop them up and saute them as part of the sofriget for the paella.

Per TiggyBee's comment, one of the only things the British are good at is using those parts. May I introduce you to Sir Haggis (lamb lights and oats), one of the world's oldest sausages.

Are you using the whole rabbit in the paella? If you're not, I found a couple of recipes that call for them, maybe you can halve or even quarter a recipe if you have rabbit left over.

So nice of you; you beat me to it! Why not just sautee them in butter and have a little snack?
