Anna Sultana's Fenek bit-tewm u bl-Imbid, Rabbit with Garlic and Wine, Maltese Style

Back in late September I posted about Carmela Soprano's Grilled Meat Skewers and, in the title, I also mentioned Ma's Fenek bit-tewm u bl-Imbid.  

I gave the Meat Skewer recipe, but went on to tell a story about my Pop getting a live rabbit while we lived in British Columbia.  I wrote about how my Pop prepared the rabbit for dinner.  But I didn't give Ma's rabbit stew recipe.

I got a few e mails, but they got lost in my computer.


Here it is.
Late, but still good.

It's an easy recipe and you don't have to hunt down a local bush bunny.
Rabbit is now in stores.

            Fenek bit-tewm u bl-Imbid

1 rabbit, cut up, placed in a large glass bowl
Cover with
1/2 bottle of red wine
marinate overnight
In a frying pan gently heat olive oil and fry
6 cloves garlic
Fry the rabbit portions until browned on both sides.
the wine marinade
2 bay leaves
salt and pepper
Simmer gently until the rabbit is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.


  1. Sounds easy enough. I love rabbit so I'm going to try it this way...I'll keep you posted when I do.

  2. It is easy. Hope you enjoy rabbit this way.
