Saltimbocca, also spelled saltinbocca (UK: / - /,, US: /-/, Italian: [ˌsaltimˈbokka]; Italian for ''[it] jump[s] in the mouth''), is an Italian dish (also popular in southern Switzerland). It consists of veal that has been wrapped ("lined") with prosciutto and sage, and then marinated in wine, oil, or salt water, depending on the region or one's own taste.
The original version of this dish is saltimbocca alla Romana ("saltimbocca Roman-style"), which consists of veal, prosciutto and sage, rolled up and cooked in dry white wine and butter. Marsala is sometimes used. Also, sometimes the veal and prosciutto are not rolled up but left flat. An American variation replaces the veal with chicken or pork.
