Recipe for Skate Wings

Andalucian seafood recipes. With southern Spain being on the Mediterranean coast seafood is plenty and can be found on every restaurant menu. Battered calamari is a firm favourite in the tapas department but for something a little more complex try this recipe for skate wings...


4 medium skate wings
Plain flour
125g butter
Handful of fresh broadleaf parsley
Squeeze of lemon juice
Salt and pepper


1. Wash the skate wings and pat dry, dust with seasoned flour, shake off the excess.

2. Melt a little of the butter in a large frying pan and fry the wings on a medium heat for 5 - 6 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from pan.

3. Add the rest of the butter to the frying pan and cook until it turns brown, taking care not to burn it. Take the pan off the heat, add the parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice.

4. Pour the sauce over the skate and serve.

Simple and easy, makes a nice starter or main meal. Delicious!
