  • 200 g Cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Lemons
  • 2 knobs Butter
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Toss the cherry tomatoes and chilli flakes in 1 tbsp of olive oil and roast in a large roasting pan for 10 minutes.
  • Season the skate wings with salt and pepper and transfer to the roasting pan, moving the tomatoes to one side. Roast for 15 minutes.
  • Make the dressing by gently melting the butter in a small non stick pan, let it cool for a while and then whisk in 2 tbsp's olive oil, the juice of a lemon and the mustard.
  • Pour the dressing over the fish and tomatoes and return to the oven for 10 minutes more.
