Veal is extremely tender and cooks quickly. The flavor in this dish is enhanced with salt, applied in the form of prosciutto. Place the meat between two pieces of plastic wrap before pounding it with a meat mallet, season and cook. Dredging the veal in flour before cooking will cause the outside to crisp up. Don't allow it to burn. Create the sauce in the same pan and plate the veal, topped with the fresh sauce.
