    Several years ago I was in Portugal with my wife. We had amazing coelho in black ink sauce. We had great awe inspiring experience bringing pieces of the wild rabbit blackened by the sauce. Underneath was a soft white meat. The contrast was amazing. I am looking for a recipe. If anyone can share it with me, I will appreciate their input.
