Rating:
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30-40 minutes

 

 
2 tablespoons Crisco® Vegetable Oil
4 tomatoes, large, peeled and chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup molasses
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ginger, minced or grated
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 pounds skate wing, cut in 4 serving portions




Heat the oil in a large skillet, add the tomatoes, onion
and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring
occasionally, until the onions are transluscent, about 5
minutes. Add the molasses, Worcestershire sauce,
ginger, Tabasco sauce, lower the heat to medium and
cook uncovered until the vegetables are thoroughly
softened and the sauce is thick, 30 to 40 minutes.
Take from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and let
cool.

Just before serving, cut away any membrane from the
skate wings. Preheat the grill or broiler. Brush the
skate wings on both sides with some of the cooled
barbecue sauce and let sit while the grill heats.

Lightly oil the grill top and add the skate wings. Cook
until the fish is nicely browned and somewhat firm, 3
to 4 minutes. Brush the top with some more
barbecue sauce, turn the fish and continue cooking
until the fish is opaque through, about 4 minutes
longer.

Transfer the skate to individual plates, brush with more
sauce and serve, passing extra sauce alongside.
