Brooke has always loved Skate, and always chooses it when we visit Whitstable harbour.She has helped me cook this dish on many occasions.


Boil the new potatoes for 15 mins, cool and halve.
Lightly dust the wing with seasoned flour and fry for 4-5 mins on each side in a little butter, take out to rest.
Sauté the potato halves in butter and a little oil for 6-7 mins, squeeze a little lemon and some chopped parsley.
Add butter and capers to the Skate pan, bubble for 2 mins, add parsley and squeezed lemon, pour over the Skate and serve with the potatoes.
