— Verral, William. "The Complete System of Cookery"

21st Century
A neglected meat in modern America, rabbit is leaner than chicken and other fowl. The gentle cooking in butter and the final sauce accompanying this preparation is like a classic fricassee, a joy to the senses.

18th Century
Take the flesh of a couple of rabbits, cut it in slices, and with a knife pat it down so as to make it very thin, rub some butter all over a large stew pan, mixed with some green onion and some parsley minced very fine, stick the meat round, and fry it a minute or two over a brisk stove, giving it toss or two, let it lie in that til you have prepared your sauce, which must be thus done, put into a small stew pan a ladle of cullis, a glass of Champagne, pepper, salt and nutmeg, a small quantity of such herbs as you like, and a morsel of shallot, boil it five or six minutes, and put your rabbit in, make it only boiling hot, squeeze in the juice of a lemon or orange, and serve it up. The flesh of chickens make a neat dish in the same way.

2 rabbits (or 2 large chicken breasts) Total 16 oz rabbit used for nutrition!
1 stick butter (1/4 lb)
4 to 5 small green onions (with about 4" of stalk) chopped fine
1 Tbsp dried or fresh chopped parsley
8 oz chicken broth
8 oz champagne or white Rhine wine
1 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp ground thyme
1/8 tsp ground rosemary
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 small shallot chopped fine
Juice of 1 orange or 1 lemon

Cut the meat of the rabbit as big as you can off of the bone with a boning knife.

With a meat tenderizing hammer or a rolling pin, gently pound the meat to make it flat. 1/4 inch or so is sufficient.

Take half of your butter and gently melt it in a large stew pan.

Shake in your parsley and green onion and add the meat.

Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes, then flip the meat over and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove meat from pan, cover and set aside.

Take the rest of your butter and put it into the pan, shake in the flour. Still over medium heat, stir butter and flour with a whisk to make a roux. Then by degrees, whisk in the broth and wine. The sauce will look like thin gravy.

Add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, herbs and shallot and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes. This will thicken the sauce a little more.

Add the cooked meat to this, and squeeze in the juice of the orange or lemon. Stir for about 30 seconds then remove from heat.

Plate the meat and pour over the sauce. Garnish as you please.
