  • 500 g veal or pork scaloppini , about 8 thin slices
  • generous pinch salt
  • generous pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary , 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 lemon , or lime
  • 2 tsp capers , optional

  • Lightly sprinkle both sides of scaloppine with salt and cayenne. Crumble rosemary evenly over one side of each piece. Melt half the butter in a large wide frying pan set over medium-high heat. Immediately add half the veal, rosemary-side up. Cook until veal loses its pink colour, from 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter and veal.
  • Return all of veal to pan. Squeeze juice from half a lemon overtop. Add capers. Flip scaloppine and swish in lemon juice. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cut remaining lemon into wedges for squeezing overtop. Great with crisp green beans and new potatoes.
