Can you tell me more about skate, ways to cook it, how to buy it and if it's a sustainable fish?
Sent by BrianEditor: Brian, as far as cooking skate wing goes, we are total newbies as well, so we will turn this one straight over to the readers. Anyone a fan of skate? How do you cook it? Here's recipe that does look quite yummy:
• Crispy Skate with Cauliflower, Bacon, Capers, and Croutons at Bon Appétit (pictured above)
There is a note of warning, though, on skate: the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch does rate it as a fish to avoid, due to overfishing and bottom trawling fishing practices.
