Moroccan Spiced Rabbit Tagine With Peas And Carrots

Delicious and easy Tagine to make from the Moroccan Mediterranean Culinary 


  • 2 ( 2 ½ lb rabbit)  cut into 8 pieces
  • 6 peeled, trimmed and sliced long slender carrots
  • 1 finely chopped small yellow onion
  • 2 cups peas, frozen
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 medium finely chopped cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Ras el hanout
  • Freshly ground pepper and sea salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin oil


Put the rabbit in a large bowl. In a small bowl, stir the Ras el hanout, 1 ½ teaspoon pepper, and 2 ½ teaspoon salt. Sprinkle this all over the rabbit. Pour the ¼ cup of olive oil all over the rabbit evenly and turn to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for a minimum of two hours and a maximum of 12 hours. 

Remove the rabbit from the fridge and let settle at room temperature for approximately 20 minutes. Heat an 8-quart Dutch oven (or a heavy duty pot) over high heat. Peel an edge of the plastic off the rabbit bowl. Use this plastic to hold the rabbit back as you pour the oil from the bowl into the pot. Heat the oil then add about 8 pieces of the rabbit with the meaty side down and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until golden brown
then flip and cook repeat the same process.

Over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pot. Add the garlic, onion, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes or until the onion is soft. Add half a cup of water and stir to scrape any browned bits from the pot. Add the rabbit and carrots and reduce the heat. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid and rearrange the rabbit to make sure that the ones previously on the bottom are now at the top and cook for 30 more minutes or until the rabbit is tender (you may add ¼ cup of water if it is too dry). 

Stir in the peas and cilantro then simmer uncovered over medium
heat for about five minutes. Serve while hot.
