Cut the sweetbreads into slices 1/2 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.
