Fried Rabbit #3

2 rabbits, (4-6 lbs. meat) cut up
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. paprika
3/4 cup salad oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper

About 1 1/2 hours before serving:

On waxed paper, combine flour and paprika; use to coat rabbit pieces. In 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, in hot salad oil, cook rabbit, a few pieces at a time, until browned on all sides. Remove pieces to platter as they are browned. When all pieces are browned, return to skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 45 minutes or until rabbit is fork-tender. (Wild rabbit makes 6 servings; domestic rabbit makes 8 servings.)
