Ingredients

1 1/2 to 2 pounds skate wing fillets, cut into 4 equal portions, patted dry

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 stick unsalted butter

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves, plus extra for garnish

2 tablespoons capers, drained

Parslied Sweet Potato Slices, recipe follows

Thin lemon slices, for garnish

Parslied Sweet Potato Slices:

1 1/2 pounds medium-sized Yukon gold potatoes, peeled

2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

  1. Lightly season the skate on both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the flour with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Dredge the skate in the seasoned flour, shaking to remove any excess.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil and melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the skate and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a warm platter and cover to keep warm while making the sauce.
  4. With a paper towel, carefully wipe out skillet and return to medium-high heat. Add the remaining 6 tablespoons butter and cook, swirling occasionally, until the butter just begins to brown and has a nutty fragrance. Add the vinegar, parsley, and capers and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and adjust seasoning to taste.
  5. Pour the sauce over the skate fillets and serve with the potatoes. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices, and serve immediately.

Parslied Sweet Potato Slices:

  2. In the saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, and add the salt and pepper. Add the potatoes and parsley, and toss to coat.
