Method

  • 01
  • Pound scaloppine with a meat mallet between two pieces of baking paper to 5mm thick. Whisk milk and eggs in a large bowl. Dip scaloppine first in seasoned flour, then egg mixture, then breadcrumbs, shaking off excess in between, then place on trays lined with baking paper and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • For caponata, heat half the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add capsicum, zucchini, onion and garlic, stir occasionally until golden (4-5 minutes), transfer to a bowl, set aside. Add remaining oil to pan, add eggplant and stir occasionally until golden (4-5 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper, combine with zucchini mixture and remaining ingredients, season to taste and set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat a quarter of the oil and a quarter of the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a quarter of the scaloppine and cook, turning once, until golden and cooked through (4-5 minutes). Wipe out pan and repeat with remaining, oil, butter and scaloppine. Season to taste and serve hot with caponata and lemon wedges.
