Shrimp Saltimbocca with Polenta

November/December 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (48 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.

the shrimp

This may be a newbie comment, but I just want to say that the technique with the shrimp was new for me - mixing lemon juice with cornstarch - and made the shrimp pop for us. (we didn't use the sage)

Quick and Delicious

Love this dish. Be careful with the sage-too much can ruin the dish. I have used this as a main course as well as an appetizer (one polenta round topped with shrimp).
My family calls this "fancy shrimp and grits". It's a favorite!

Easy, quick, different

I will try this recipe. Looks simple and healthy. Polenta is also a good alternative from rice or pasta.
