Skate in browned sage butter with lemon and capers is a classic. Sautee some fresh sage leaves in butter until the butter starts to smell nice and to brown up a bit, then remove the sage and toss in the fish. Add some capers and a squeeze of lemon during cooking. Yum. Don’t try this one with dried sage though.
If you lack fresh sage, you can substitute another aromatic herb like basil or rosemary. Again you don’t want to use the dried herb because it cannot easily be removed before adding the delicate fish.
