Definition: Saltimbocca

Popular in Italy and especially Rome, saltimbocca is a dish made traditionally with veal cutlets but sometimes with chicken or pork. The meat is usually pounded thin and wrapped in or topped by prosciutto and sage leaves.

Often cooked in white wine and butter or oil, the veal is then seasoned with its own sauce and sometimes capers. Saltimbocca means "jumps in the mouth" in Italian.

i've heard this phrase SO MANY times when watching the food network or top chef that i had to look it up and i really do appreciate that you've included a post on it here :) i think that we tend to get scared away by the names of cooking dishes, and well - this one really isn't that complex :)
