Skate salad


  • Serves 4 people

  • 1 kg skate wings
  • 100 ml red wine vinegar
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • 2 cups (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 large red onion, finely sliced
  • 200 ml olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest only
  • ½ cup salted capers, rinsed
01   Rub skate wings with salt and a little of the vinegar to remove slime. Rinse in cold water. Place skate wings in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add 2 tbsp of the vinegar, bay leaves, some parsley and salt. Poach the skate wings for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from saucepan and cool. Remove skin from wing and then, using your hands, pull flesh from cartilage in strips, and shred.
02   Place skate strips in a serving bowl, add remaining ingredients, season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and combine well. Serve with crusty bread.
