Delicious succulent texture and as easy to cook as a scallop with a fresh shellfish flavour. Serve them as an interesting starter perhaps with a pea puree.

 

Cooking Instructions:
 

Cook and serve as you would a scallop, noting that Skate Cheeks have cartilage running through the middle.
Skate cheeks are incredibly versatile, but we suggest simply frying them to really appreciate this cut of fish.

Cooking guidelines:
Defrost in fridge overnight. Remove from packaging and rinse with water, pat dry with kitchen paper.
Coat the skate cheeks in seasoned flour.
Heat a frying pan until hot, add 15g butter to the pan. When foaming add the skate cheeks carefully and fry for 2-3 mins or until completely cooked.
Ensure piping hot throughout before serving.
