How To Cook Skate
Landed in Newlyn and Plymouth, our Skate Wing is aptly named: this fish is a member of the ray family, whose pectoral fins are so enormous that they have the appearance of wings.
Skate wing is delicious, with a taste similar to scallops, and has a unique, firm texture due to a high collagen content in the fillet.
This also makes it incredibly moist when cooked, with a lovely springy mouthfeel.
Those in the know cook skate simply with brown butter and capers, which complement both the texture and flavour of this unusual cut perfectly.
