Mix well, add the coconut milk, fish sauce and the remaining lime juice. Stir well and allow to cook for a further 6 to 8 minutes then keep warm.
  • Take the bamboo skewers out of water and thread the rabbit onto the skewers. Cook on each side using a BBQ or griddle pan. Once cooked, remove from pan and serve with satay sauce and pitta bread.
