Buy Skate online from the UK's leading fishmonger

Skate are cartilaginous fish related to sharks and rays. Only the “wings” are eaten, which together with “ray” is another name for them. The different types of skate are roker, thornback, patches and blondes. Blondes are the best. Customers in the fishmongers in Reading ask for skate middles, which isn’t the middle of the skate, but the middle of the wings. 

There are a lot of restrictions on fishing skate. When we can get them they are from Cornwall and Devon.

Order Wings and Rays now from a traditional high street fishmonger

The best way of cooking Skate is to poach them, then serve with a caper sauce – here’s a skate recipe. Try frying and baking as well. If you are looking for an alternative, there is no fish that’s strictly comparable, but if you are looking for Cornish fish try Cod or Plaice.
