Scaloppine of sweetbreads with lemon

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Sweetbreads, soaked, trimmed, and blanched
Flour
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 tablespoons Butter
2 Lemons, very thinly sliced

Cut the sweetbreads into slices ½ inch thick, season them with salt and pepper, and dust with flour. Heat the butter in a large frying pan over fairly high heat and brown the sweetbreads for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a hot serving platter and keep warm. Add the paper-thin slices of lemon to the butter remaining in the pan, toss over high heat for a few seconds, and then spoon them over the sweetbreads.

Serves 6.
