Skate with Warm Green Salsa (2)

This is from Delia Smith’s ” Summer Collection”, a book i suspect many of us have had on our shelves at one time or another judging by the number of copies I now see in second hand shops. I like to eat this with chips or mashed potatoes. The sauce goes well with any fried fish.

  1. First make the Salsa. Crush the garlic with ½ teaspoon of salt using a pestle and mortar until you get a paste-like consistency. Combine with all the other salsa ingredients and mix everything very thoroughly.
  2. To cook the skate wings, take a 10 inch (25 cm) frying pan and put it on a gentle heat to warm up while you wipe the fish with kitchen paper and then coat it with a light dusting of seasoned flour.
  3. Turn the heat up to high, add the oil to the pan and, as soon as it's really hot, add the skate wings. Fry them for about 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on their size and thickness – slide the tip of a sharp knife in and push to see if the flesh parts from the bone easily and looks creamy white.
  4. Then pour in the salsa all round the fish to heat very briefly. It doesn't need to cook but simply to warm a little. Serve the fish straight away with the salsa spooned over.
