This saltimbocca recipe is adapted from The Silver Spoon, the enormous volume that has been dubbed “the Italian Joy of Cooking.” According to the book, “This is the only main course in Italian cuisine whose recipe has been officially approved and laid down.”
Though veal is traditional, turkey, chicken, and pork all make fine substitutes. Use chicken or turkey breast meat (boneless, skinless) or turkey tenders. For pork, use tenderloin or boneless center-cut loin chops, cut in slices and pounded into scallops.
