Here is a dish which I am very proud of. It always goes down well at the pub and is very simple to prepare.
The Skate wing is marinated in a mix of Turmeric, fennel seeds, garam masala, garlic, fresh chilli, fresh ginger, dried corainder, cumin seeds and fresh coriander.
Now, I know not every home will have all these spices and ingredients, or maybe you do, but have never used them. I can say that just using a general curry powder seasoning will work as well.
Trim the skate wings to your preference. rub them with the spices and a little olive oil.
Leave to marinade in a fridge for a couple of hours
When you are ready to cook the wings, I start by searing them quite aggressively in a pan with some butter/ghee. Then transferring then to an ovenproof dish and roasting them
the oven should be set to 200c. A 300g wing will take around 5 minutes.
This is a dish which will go great with salad, Bombay potatoes or just some plain rice.
Once you remove it from the oven, you can check that its cooked by how easily the middle joint bone comes away.
Skate does not keep very well, so it's always a good idea to cook it on the day of purchase.
