INGREDIENTS (serves 4):

  • 1 lb veal scallopini (or cutlets) 
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt (plus more, to taste)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp capers, drained
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp (1/4 stick) butter, cut into 4-8 pieces
  • 1/4 cup (1 scoop) Unflavored 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powder 
  • 4 cups arugula, loosely packed
  • 1 lemon, sliced, for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish

    1. Pat veal dry and season with salt. Set aside.
    2. Add oil to pan and place over medium-high heat to heat. Add veal to pan and cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side and set aside. To avoid overcrowding pan cook veal in batches, or piece by piece.
