You can use any kind of meat to make these dead-simple scaloppine – veal, turkey, chicken, pork, even beef if you can find pieces thin enough. Cook them quickly in butter over high heat, then turn those buttery pan drippings into your sauce, seasoning it with garlic and a squeeze of lemon or lime. This needs no further embellishment. But a handful of capers, sliced olives, chopped fresh herbs or toasted sliced almonds warmed in the butter at the last minute wouldn’t do any harm, either.
