4 pieces skate wing, unfilleted (about 2 1/2 pounds in all)
4 1/2 cups water, or more if needed
1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon peppercorns
2 bay leaves
1/4 pound butter
1/3 cup capers
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper




Put the skate in a large deep frying pan in one layer. Pour the water and the 1/2 cup vinegar over the fish. Add the thyme, 1 teaspoon of the salt, the 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 to a rolling boil. Remove from the heat and let sit until the fish is just done, about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the fish and drain on paper towels.

Meanwhile, in a medium stainless-steel saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat. Cook until the butter turns a medium brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar, the capers, the parsley, the remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the 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.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
