For dinner as a guest i had my brother in law(John)
with him to cook is a pleasure because,he appreciates the delicate flavors.
So I decided to make a menu a bit special, and as a main dish I chose to make, Saltimbocca alla Romana.
Classic recipe of Italian cuisine (the true origins of this recipe are, as you can see from the title, from Rome).
Ingredients for 4 people
8 Slices of veal 70 g each
8 slices Parma ham
20 sage leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Half glass of white wine
Approximately 100 g flour
Olio di Oliva (extra virgin)and some botter
It is very important that the veal slices are cut very finely, as you can see from the photo
I also use a saucepan to make them even thinner (slamming from both sides)
In a bowl put the flour, and begin to dust with flour on both sides of the slices of veal
Now that the veal slices have become all white,
begin to put the slices of ham on top of each slice of veal,
and on top of the Parma ham add the leaves of sage
strengthen the things around with toothpicks, as you can see from the picture
I think ,now, I do differently from the classic recipe,
in the pan add the remaining leaves of sage ,
and I make them fry lightly (in butter and olive oil) so the oil and butter take the flavor
Now add the slices of veal and fry them both sides,
at the same time blend them with the white wine,
and in this way, I get also a sauce to be added over the saltimbocca alla Romana
With the Saltimbocca alla Romana i served mashed Spinach and potatoes .
At the end of the evening I think my brother in law was very happy
is correct John?? 🙂
