  • 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
  • 1 oz capers
  • 3 anchovy fillets
  • 8 1/2 oz butter softened
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 portions of skate wing each weighing about 5 1/3 oz


  • Heat the oven to 200°C/gas 6.
  • 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.
  • Heat a large, lightly oiled roasting tray in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Serve immediately with scoops of the soft herb butter.
