Scaloppine al Limone

  • 4 four-ounce pieces of veal loin, pounded about ¼-inch thick
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 bottle Etna Bianco
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. While it’s heating, dredge the veal in the seasoned flour, then in the beaten egg. Add the veal to the hot frying pan and cook on each side until just before browning, about 1 or 2 minutes on each side. Add 2 ounces of wine, the lemon juice and the butter to the pan and simmer, spooning the sauce over the veal, until the liquid is reduced by half. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the pan drippings—and with a glass of the remaining Etna Bianco wine, of course.
