  1. Season the skate with salt and pepper. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Dredge the skate in the flour, coating completely.

  4. Add the fish back into the sauce and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. In another saute pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of the oil. When the oil is hot, add the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes.
