Wild fish caught in Atlantic, North-East
Skates and Rays are sharks that spend a lot of time lying on the ocean floor. Their pectoral fins are so greatly exaggerated they are called “wings”. This adaption makes them flat so they can blend into the sand where they are nearly invisible. The edible portion of the fish, the wings, has striated white flesh with a sweet flavor and a texture that is at once delicate and meaty. Long popular in Europe and Asia, with dishes that go beyond the French classic of skate in brown-butter sauce with capers.
The ratio between the weight of the whole fish and the fillets is 2.5 , which means that for a fish of 1 Kg, you will get around 400g of fillets.
One fish of about 1 Kg will be enough as a starter for 6 and a main course for 3 .
