Skate with Nut Butter

Skate with Nut Butter

4 small skate wings, rinsed and patted dry
1 tbsp oil
50g butter
¼ cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped and lightly toasted
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Heat one tablespoon of oil in large frypan over moderate heat.

If the skate wings are very large, it is best to cut them in half.

Add skate wings to pan, and cook for five minutes on each side, or until cooked through when tested with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat. Add chopped parsley and lemon juice. Toss in nuts and remove from heat.

Pour nut butter evenly over cooked skate and serve.
