Veal Piccata With Capers In A Lemon Sauce

Lately I have been trying to prepare much healthier food and instead of too much red meat I started to make more fish. I also tried this veal recipe which is easy to prepare and delicious.

4 large veal cutlets
Plain all purpose flour (I use 100% whole wheat flour) seasoned with salt and pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons capers
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley

Place the veal between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until an even thickness. Lightly dust each side with flour.

Heat the olive oil and butter in a large frying pan. Fry the cutlets over moderately high heat for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Season and transfer to a warm plate.

Add the wine to the pan, increase the heat to high and boil until there are just 3 - 4 tablespoons of liquid left. Pour in the stock and boil for 4 - 5 minutes, or until it has reduced and slightly thickened. Add the lemon juice and capers and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Taste for seasoning, then return the cutlets to the pan and heat through for 1 minute. Sprinkle with parsley and serve at once with mash potatoes and a fresh salad.

  9. Hi Madelief......I must admit, fish needs to taste good otherwise I don't enjoy it....or even want to eat it! I made my husband sardines mixed with Italian Balsamic vinegar on fresh whole wheat bread for lunch today with fresh tomato and herbs on top of it and it really was delicious and healthy!
