Veal Scaloppine with Wilted Parsley, Lemon and Sesame

  • FAST

Marcia Kiesel wilts parsley to make a clever topping for quick-cooking veal scaloppine.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 medium shallots, minced
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 4 anchovy fillets, minced
  5. 6 cups small flat-leaf parsley sprigs
  6. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  8. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  9. 1 1/4 pounds veal scaloppine (8 pieces), pounded 1/8 inch thick
  10. All-purpose flour, for dusting
  11. Vegetable oil, for frying
  12. 2 1/2 tablespoons Japanese crushed roasted sesame seeds (see Note)
  1. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat until softened, 3 minutes. Add the garlic and anchovies and cook over moderately low heat until fragrant, 4 minutes. Add the parsley and cook over moderate heat, tossing, until wilted, 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice and the butter and stir until melted. Remove the parsley from the heat and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Set a rimmed baking sheet near the stove. Season the veal with salt and pepper and dust with flour, shaking off the excess. In a large skillet, heat 1/8 inch of vegetable oil until shimmering. Add 3 of the veal scaloppine and cook over high heat until browned, 1 minute. Turn and cook for 30 seconds longer, until browned. Transfer to the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining veal, adding more oil and adjusting the heat as necessary. Discard the oil.
  3. Pour any accumulated veal juices into the parsley and reheat. Transfer the veal to plates and spoon the parsley and sauce on top; sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
Notes Find seasoned Japanese sesame seeds (gomashio) at Asian markets or substitute crushed toasted sesame seeds and salt. Serve With Roasted potatoes.

Suggested Pairing

Gamay's bright acidity is delicious with the lemon-dressed greens.
