Skates and rays are a large group of fish that are caught worldwide. They can be of a considerable size with a flat body, large fins and a long whip-like tail. Skate is the wings or fins of a cartilaginous flatfish. The meat has a distinctive taste and fibrous texture.
Skate wings are ready to go, once cooked you can scrape the flesh off the cartilage like bones with a fork.
Please note that Skate wings are priced at £10.50/1kg. Each wing is different so the weights and prices are indicitive, meaning their may be a small additional amount to pay on delivery.
We recommened an individual skate wing of approximately 400g - 600g per person, this is inclusive of the cartilidge like bones.
