Saltimbocca alla Romana

You'll need

  Saltimbocca 8 (90 gm each) escalopes of veal 8 slices of prosciutto 16 large sage leaves 50 gm butter 1 tbsp olive oil 300 ml dry Marsala or dry white wine   Sautéed spinach 25 gm butter, chopped 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced 250 gm baby spinach leaves To serve: roasted rosemary potatoes


  • 01
  • Season veal escalopes to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Trim prosciutto slices to size of escalopes, then place over escalopes to almost cover, and weave toothpicks through sage to secure.
  • 02
  • Heat butter and olive oil in a large frying pan and pan-fry escalopes (prosciutto-side down first), in batches, for 1 minute or until golden. Turn and cook for another 1 minute or until golden, then transfer escalopes to a plate, remove toothpicks and cover to keep warm. Add Marsala to pan and boil over high heat until reduced by half, then strain sauce through a fine sieve into a jug.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for sautéed spinach, place butter and garlic in a saucepan, stir over medium heat until butter melts and garlic is soft. Add washed but still-wet spinach leaves and stir over medium heat until just wilted. Add 1 tbsp of sauce and season to taste.
  • 04
  • Serve saltimbocca alla Romana with sautéed spinach and roasted rosemary potatoes to the side, and sauce drizzled over the dish.
