Braised Florida rabbit
Beneath the floppy ears and cotton-ball tail of a rabbit is some seriously delicious meat. It truly does taste like chicken -- only leaner and slightly sweeter. Or perhaps it's like a more healthful duck.

Other bonuses: Because rabbit is still a "boutique meat," most local restaurants use Florida rabbits from family-run farms where the animals are raised on a clean herbivore diet without the use of hormones or steroids. Plus, there appears to be no shortage, as we all know how well rabbits procreate.

If this season's offering of chocolate bunnies -- Easter is this Sunday, April 20 -- has you jonesing for the real savory deal or you simply want to taste the meat for the first time, we have five must-try rabbit dishes.

Go gong bao.
Gong Bao Rabbit at Blackbrick
If you want to try your rabbit with some heat, head to Blackbrick for the gong bao rabbit ($17). This dish has roasted fresh chili peanuts, red and green peppers, onion, jalapeño slices, and Sichuan pepper thrown in for quite a kick. The tender rabbit meat is not overpowered, but rather highlighted, in this flavorful plate. Bonus: The bones are used in the stock for the comforting wonton soup.

I''ve had fresh rabbit, didn't like it. Tuff meat. Maybe it was the way it was cooked.
