Surprise your loved ones with some professional kitchen snacks.

The Christmas holidays are coming and with them the perfect excuse to celebrate, with all the precautions required by the health situation we live in, with our loved ones around a table. We leave you some ideas to fill the table with special appetizers.

Rabbit, apricot and pistachio terrine

Ingredients:

175 grams of pistachios, 100 grams of dried apricots, 250 grams of bacon, 250 grams of beef tenderloin, 50 grams of seine butter, 12 slices of bacon, 1 glass of brandy, 2 boneless half rabbits, salt and pepper.

Elaboration:

Submerge the pistachios and dried apricots in the brandy glass to hydrate them. Meanwhile, we cut the rabbit meat into small cubes. We mix half of the pork with the beef and chop it. Then we add the other half of the rabbit meat and season. Finally, we mix the pistachios, dried apricots and lard.

We line the container where we are going to make the terrine with the overlapping bacon strips and fill the mold with the meat. It is important to tighten it so that it is compact. We cover the upper part with the bacon strips, cover the mold with baking paper and put it on top of a mold with water. We bake at 150º for 1h 45min.

Once this time has passed, we remove the terrine and let it cool. We put weight on it and let it rest in the fridge for 12 hours. And ready! A tip to unmold is to immerse the container in another with hot water for a couple of minutes.
