How to Make Veal Piccata

Step-by-Step

  1. In a shallow bowl or plate combine flour, garlic salt and pepper and stir to combine thoroughly. Quickly dredge veal scallops in seasoned flour mixture, shaking to remove any excess flour.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high, heat oil until very hot but not smoking. Add 1 ½ tbsp. butter and, working quickly and in batches if necessary, cook the veal until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside
  3. Deglaze pan with wine and bring to a broil, scraping to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. When wine has reduced by half, add chicken stock, garlic, lemon juice and capers; cook for 5 minutes, or until sauce has thickened slightly. Whisk in remaining 3 tbsp. of butter and chopped parsley
  4. Return veal scallops to the pan and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Garnish with parsley sprigs, lemon slices and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings
