Guy Grossi: Turkey saltimbocca with cranberries

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 10 people

  • 2 turkey breasts (about 350gm each), skin removed
  • 60 ml (ΒΌ cup) olive oil
  • For dusting: seasoned plain flour
  • 30 gm butter, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped sage
  • 200 ml dry white wine
  • 250 gm frozen cranberries (see note)
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto, torn
01   Cut each turkey breast horizontally into 6 thin slices. Pound each between two pieces of plastic wrap with a meat mallet to 5mm thick, set aside.
02   Heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dust turkey slices in flour, shaking off excess, and cook in batches until golden and cooked through (2-3 minutes each side). Remove from pan, keep warm. Add butter and sage to pan and cook until sage is crisp (1-2 minutes). Deglaze pan with wine and reduce by half (4-6 minutes), add cranberries to warm through (1-2 minutes), season to taste. Serve turkey hot drizzled with pan juices, scattered with prosciutto.
Note Frozen cranberries are available from select delicatessens; defrost before use.
