    Skate Wings with Green Salsa

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 3 tbsp plain flour
    • Salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 4 skate wings
    • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
    • Salsa
    • 3 garlic cloves
    • 8 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and finely chopped
    • 2 tsp capers, rinsed and drained
    • 4 tbsp olive oil
    • Juice of 1 large lemon
    • Handful of parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 bunch watercress, finely chopped


    1. To make the salsa, crush the garlic with a pinch of salt in a pestle and mortar. Add the chopped anchovy fillets and capers. Whisk in the olive oil and lemon juice, then add the parsley. Just before you cook the skate, stir in the watercress and check the seasoning.
    2. Put the flour on a plate and season it. Dust the skate wings in the seasoned flour and brush off any excess. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. When hot, add two of the skate wings and fry for 4-5 minutes each side until golden brown. Pour over half the salsa and cook for a further minute until the salsa is warmed through. Set aside and keep warm while you repeat with the remaining 2 skate wings. Serve with a green salad.
