French culinary term coming from the verb "sauter" meaning to jump. Food cooked in this manner should be cut into pieces of equal size, and shallow-fried over a good heat in butter, oil or other fat. These foods commonly include fish, poultry and meat, as well as items such as sauté potatoes - which in many unscrupulous restaurants might be deep-fried.
