    You made quick work of them! I like them super simple with a flour dredge and fried in butter.

    Theory,
    Do you treat your wings for the ammonia smell that is so common in them?

    Is the removal of the red bits for the cosmetics or are they problematical as far as taste/texture are concerned?

    the red bits are similar to bloodline in that they can have a organ-ish taste. i prefer to remove them if possible but sometimes they go all the way through.

    nice video!!

    Yeah we usually just season them and give em a light dredge in wondra or rice flour then a nice pan sear. Finish with a menuire sauce or a brown butter balsamic emulsion.

    As for the ammonia smell, they don't really do that for about 3 days. They don't really hold after that. We even vacuum them at the end of the shift and ice em down. After the third night of service that's it. They should smell sweet like a scallop and yet fresh like the ocean. In a good way. If your skate wing smells like ammonia, it's most likely older than three days. Also, when caught and if not processed right away, about 30 min after death depending upon temperature, they can smell of ammonia strongly as well.

    Hi what knife are you using? is this your favorite knife for skate? would a not be effective because it isn't flexible?

    Never worked with skate but I'm interested. I don't have a boning knife. I could see a pretty being useful

    Thanks

    Nice work, more ethical than a round cookie cutter.
