    Serves 2

    ◾1 rabbit jointed into 8 (legs chopped in half)
    ◾2 cloves garlic finely chopped
    ◾50g butter
    ◾1medium red onion very finely diced
    ◾1 large thumb of ginger finely chopped
    ◾3tbsp finely chopped coriander stalks
    ◾12 large stoned green olives & halved length ways
    ◾1 tsp cumin
    ◾ tsp cinnamon
    ◾2 tsp turmeric
    ◾60g preserved lemon (quartered lengthways & thinly sliced)
    ◾700ml water
    ◾ tsp salt


    Melt the butter in a heavy casserole just big enough to take the rabbit.

    Put the rabbit in &the salt followed by the coriander, onion, garlic & ginger.

    Scatter in the powdered spices & cook them for a few minutes turning everything together methodically and taking care not to burn them

    Drop in the olives.

    Pour in the water, bring the liquid up to a simmer before turning it right down & putting the lid on, leave it on the hob to cook 2 hours, check the temperature after 5 minutes by lifting the lid, it should not be boiling, just gently simmering, regulate the heat again if necessary

    20 minutes before serving drop in your preserved lemons.

    When done scatter the rabbit with chopped coriander leaves & serve with couscous dusted over with a little cinnamon.
