3/4– 1 lb. skate fillet
1/4 c flour
2 T olive oil
1 T capers
3 T butter
1 T raspberry vinegar (or other fruit vinegar)
Italian parsley to garnish

Dust skate fillets in flour, In a sauté pan on medium-high heat, melt 1 T butter with 2 T olive oil and heat until bubbling, but not smoking (fillets should sizzle when placed in the pan). Sauté for about 3 minutes per side or until the fillets are opaque to the center. Remove skate from pan and turn temperature down to medium. Add remaining 2 T butter, when butter just begins to brown, add the capers and the fruit vinegar, stir and immediately drizzle brown butter over skate portions. (This brown butter can also be served over poached skate.)  Bon appetit!
