How To Make Skate with Capers and Brown Butter
Enter a seafood adventure with this Skate with Capers and Brown Butter dish! It’s simmered in a tasty sauce made of red wine vinegar, butter, and caper.
Put the skate in a large deep frying pan in one layer.
Pour the water and the ½ cup vinegar over the fish.
Add the thyme, 1 teaspoon of salt, peppercorns, bay leaves, and more water if needed to cover.
Bring to a simmer and cook, partially covered, at a gentle simmer for 3 minutes.
Raise the heat and bring it to a rolling boil.
Remove from the heat and let sit for about 5 minutes until the fish is just done.
Carefully remove the fish and drain on paper towels.
Meanwhile, in a medium stainless-steel saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat.
Cook for about 5 minutes until the butter turns medium brown.
Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the remaining 1½ tablespoons vinegar, the capers, the parsley, the remaining ¾ teaspoon of salt, and ground pepper.
Serve the fish topped with the sauce.
Wine Recommendation: Capers suggest a medium-bodied, flavorful white wine, such as a Gavi from Italy or a pinot blanc from Alsace in France.
