Colin Turner’s Recipe for Simply Succulent Skate Steaks

This is a very simple recipe that enhances the succulence of these delicious steaks blended with Roasted Broccoli, Yellow Courgette, Cherry Tomatoes and Spinach.

Serves 4


4 x skate steaks

4 oz salted butter

4 tablespoons Capers [drained] some people like to crush the capers with the back of a spoon but I prefer to leave them whole to retain their ‘pop!’

Juice of 2 Lemons



Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.

Place skate steaks in a large casserole tray.

In a small pan melt the butter over a medium/high heat until the butter foams and is golden, sauté capers until fragrant, about 30 seconds.  Add lemon juice.  Stir gently on a low heat for approx.3 mins.

Pour caper butter evenly over the 4 skate steaks, season with pepper, then bake in oven for 30 mins. (This allowed for 2 x packs of M 420g from Fish Society)

To test if they are cooked, slide the tip of a sharp knife in and push gently to see if the flesh parts from the bone easily and looks creamy-white. If this is not the case cook for a further few minutes.

Serve on a bed of baby spinach leaves, with roasted broccoli, yellow courgette and cherry tomatoes.
