panfried skate with brown butter and capers

from: a new way to cook p. 248 Posted by Hello

well, you might have noticed that the piece of fish is not actually skate wing. i looked everywhere in my area to no avail. whole foods, andronico's, draeger's, asian markets. nada. so i used red snapper instead. does anyone know of a good fishmonger in the peninsula? now that i think about it, i bet the seafood place at the ferry building would have it. but who wants to pay for parking?

i was a little disappointed with this dish. the fish itself was a little bland. and the sauce, which contains balsamic and sherry vinegars, was surprisingly mellow. maybe having skate wing makes a difference in this dish. i wouldn't know, having only had it once in my life. the asparagus was delicious though. i just roasted them with extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. the bread was the leftover ciabatta from the other night.
