Shrimp Saltimbocca with Polenta

November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (58 votes)

Saltimbocca is an Italian word that literally means “jump mouth,” presumably because of its bold flavors. The dish is traditionally made with veal and seasoned with sage and prosciutto. We love these flavors in our simple version made with shrimp. Store-bought polenta turns golden brown under the broiler for an easy accompaniment. Serve with: Sautéed green beans and red peppers.

Easy, quick and delicious. I have never broiled polenta before-I am thinking of cooking it like that always. It's already a favorite!


My husband really liked this. This recipe is very easy and quick. I made my own polenta when I had a little time using the microwave technique I've used for years, spread the cooked polenta in a oil sprayed baking dish, and chilled it. Cut the polenta into squares and followed the recipe. Very Good!


Tried this last night. Made my own polenta, spead in a jelly roll pan, cooled, cut into squares, then broiled. Else same as recipe. Quick, easy and very tasty.
