Skate wings are very simple to cook and easy to eat. The ribbed flesh pulls away easily from either side of the middle layer cartilage and, because there are no fiddly bones to deal with, even children who claim not to like fish usually love it. Serve with new potatoes and green beans.
For classic skate with black butter, cook the skate as above. To make the black butter sauce, melt 45g butter in a small pan. Turn up the heat and cook until it starts to go brown. As the colour begins to deepen, remove from the heat and add 1tbsp each of drained and rinsed capers and chopped fresh parsley. Pour over the fish and serve
