Skate with Herb Butter

ingredients

serves 6
a bunch of watercress
a bunch of flat-leaf parsley
a bunch of chervil
a bunch of tarragon
a bunch of chives
1 clove of garlic
25 g capers
3 anchovy fillets
250 g butter, softened
juice of 1/2 lemon
freshly ground black pepper
6 x 150 g portions of skate wing

method

Heat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.

1. Trim the stems of the watercress and herbs then put the leaves into a small blender with the garlic, capers and anchovies and whiz until finely chopped. (You could do this by hand, but you would need a little patience.) Add the butter, lemon juice and pepper and blend until evenly mixed. Scoop out and place in a serving bowl.

2. Heat a large, lightly oiled roasting tray in the oven for 5 minutes.

3. Pat the skate wings dry with kitchen paper to remove excess moisture, then lay them on the heated roasting tray. Drizzle with a little olive oil and roast in the top of the oven for 15 minutes.

4. Serve immediately with scoops of the soft herb butter.
