Mattisse recipe

Saltimbocca ('Jump in the mouth')

This is a great, quick and tasty recipe, but you need, like always, the best ingredients. The meat portions should not be too big, otherwise how could they spring in your mouth?

Cut the meat in portions, pepper them (no salt), cut the ham in equal portions and set it one by one on the meat pieces, put a sage leaf in the middle of every portion, clamp and press it together with your fingers and fix with a toothpick.

Heat up the oil in a large pan, cover the meat pieces with flour and panfry them 1-2 minutes on each side, add the Marsala slowly and bring it to boil, lighten it and flambé until the sauce is nicely caramelized, now correct salt and serve hot.

Mattisse recipe

Ingredients for 4 or 5:
Veal or beef sliced very thinly (to get 3-4 Saltimbocca per persons), raw ham (unsmoked), 1 fresh sage leave per portion, 1 cup medium dry Marsala (no egg Marsala, but you can use Vinsanto, Sherry, Port or Sake instead), flour, olive oil, salt and pepper, toothpicks.
