Skate with Samphire Chilli & Capers

Skate has a gorgeous texture and takes on flavour well. The wing comes with a flat horizontal skeleton type bone, all in one piece which makes it easy to eat without worrying about tiny bones. I find it works really well roasted in a hot oven as frying it on the hob would require a very large frying pan for more than one piece. This dressing is so simple but transforms the fish into something very special. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Serves 2 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ INGREDIENTS
