    If prepared properly, would you eat the meat from a rabbit?

    Also, another on topic question, has anyone tried squid?

      I've had rabbit, it's really good.  Doesn't "taste like chicken" as some others have said.

      I eat squid all the time.  That's what fried calamari is.

      I would, and have eaten, rabbit. I like it...

      I tried calamari once...did not like it.

      Yep. And I also wouldn't be averse to trying deer, buffalo, and probably some others.

    From what I am to understand Rabbit taste like Chicken. So, I guess I might. I just wouldn't kill one to eat it, unless I didn't have a choice.

    As for Squid..I'm not much of a fish eater. hmm

    I love to eat sea foods, but I may eat also a rabbit if there is no other food in the table.big_smile

    we raised rabbits for meat.  Every Sunday we grilled one for the Sunday dinner.  It was delicious!  They grow so fast too. 

    Butchering them took a bit getting used to though.

      I owned a rabbit in Cali and my parents would joke about eating her, or putting her into a stew.

    I come from a family of nine ,so we ate Rabbit stew, was yummy with mashed potatoes.
    (Course that all changed after Watership Downs.


    We lived beside the Pacific Ocean ,so it was pretty much our supermarket that,and the Rainforest (Deer,Pork,.)

    For years I thought my dad was a farmer ,since we always seem to have all this meat roll

    Since I was quite young, I hunted rabbit, squirrel, pheasant and deer; Everyone was eaten. Rabbit is delicious, just don't hit the "stink sack" when cleaning it. Squirrel is a stringy meat. I just love pheasant and deer.

          we put our lobster to sleep first by rocking them back and forth in a wide arc by their tails.  they dont scream after that!

        Cooking lobster is not complicated. On our tour in Canada, we bought fresh lobster direct from a lobster pond. The owner gave us a tip of cooking it. So we parked our Camper direct 5 minutes from the beach, my husband filled a big pot with see water and cooked the lobster in the boiling water. It tasted so good....yame....

    My husband loves it...i don't eat rabbit, but i prepare and cook it for my husband. Tip: cook rabbit meat with a little water, put salt and pepper, lorblatt herbs, little white venigar. Cook until water vaporise, add a little oil and fried until golbraun.

    I've eaten it, but wasn't that impressed. It did remind me a bit of chicken, but the dry white meat. I prefer dark. I guess I would eat it again if it were offered, but I'm not sure I'd seek it out.

    I hunt for rabbit and most other wild animals that a leagel to kill for the meat. When cooked (and as Habee advised to kill the animal first) all make awesome meals.
    Now for SQUID---Stuffed--Fantastic. Fried can be a little tough eating.

    Properly prepared I'd eat a rabbit and yes had squid a few times, not a big seafood fan, but it was okay.

  16. classicalgeek profile image88
    classicalgeekposted 6 years ago

    I have eaten rabbit but didn't care for it. I have the same digestive problems with it that I have with dark meat chicken/turkey. Whether the meat is too fatty or what, I don't know.

    I have had delicious fresh baby squid caught straight from the sea, and I have had awful rubbery squid that I imagine had languished on a freezer shelf for months if not years and was prepared by someone with little to no knowledge of how to prepare it.

    I plan to eat one member of every animal species before I die. I have eaten squid and rabbit is on the list somewhere.

        Actually, fried rattlesnake does taste like chicken, EK!  Like alligator tail, which tastes like white chicken breast if properly prepared.  smile

          Really...well maybe one day, I never say never.

          I am glad I have never been in a position where I had to eat snake,but when ya think about it if I was ever desperate and /or cornered, I would hope my survival instincts kicked in (as Im sure Slippery Sams would) lol

          P.S I tried bear last year. It was different than anything I had ever eaten, a little gamey maybe, my friend had used spices too,but was really ok.

            Randy Godwinposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            I don't particularly like bear, but it may have been the way it was prepared.  If one can eat chicken, especially considering how they are raised and the huge amount of growth hormones used to make them grow quickly, I cannot understand why they would be reluctant to eat other species of animals.

            A chicken raised by mass production will be fully grown in 8 weeks, whereas free range chicks will still be less than 1/4 the size of the pen raised fowl for the same time period.  And we wonder why kids develop so fast these days.  Chicken McNuggets?  smile

    Rabbit shining was once popular here in the deep south before the deer population returned to the area.  Because deer are also blinded by a spotlight, it is illegal to spotlight any animals at night, now.

    Back when the rabbit population exploded, we would harvest as many as 50 a night.  All of these rabbits were eaten.  If not by us, then by the pleased buyers of the delicious meat.

    It tastes very good if properly prepared.  Similar to spotted owl!  lol

    Kill the wabbit... kill the wabbit... No, I cannot kill the poor "wabbit". If I am not given options just to kill that creature I would probably starve myself to death or eat grass or something. I cannot kill animals myself. Once I remember I bought in my old country a rabbit, stewed it with some vegetables and invited my family to eat. No one knew it was a rabbit. My oldest son, 5 at the time, came and enthusiastically told me,"Mom,I am eating wings!"

    I'd eat the fluffy little bunny. Never have, but I hear it's quite succulent. I look forward to trying it one day for myself. I also want to try mutton.

    I had venison once. But I was young, fresh from the city, I couldn't get past the psychological repugnance. Wouldn't drink the unprocessed milk either.

    No to squid raw, hate sushi, both just the psychological factor of it and the texture itself I find unpleasant. Squid not bad deep-fried though, lol.

    I have sucked the head of a crawfish and all that. Honestly it's not worth it. But then I've never been big on any shellfish, which is odd since I grew up near the beach. Only scallops, love scallops bay or sea, and conch is good. But I never really got the whole big fascination with shrimp or lobster. Done well, it's good, but just good. Buttery, soft, nice. Kind of bland, even when seasoned, and often when seasoned it's not really done well.

    Anyways. Yes to snake, no to bugs. Have had alligator meat, pretty good, no complaints, nothing special.

    I have still managed to avoid frog legs, and think I'll just continue to do so.

    I think Anthony Zimmerman is totally gross. I hate that show. Give me Bourdain and the hog obsession, hah!
