Pasta e Broccoli in Ray (Skate) Broth
First things first: find the skate. Called everyone I could think of: Captain Marden's, James Hook, McKinnons. Any one of them can special order it Finally drove down to HMart since they have a huge fish department. I also needed a duck and some pork belly, but that's another story or two. After some very nice bowl of YukGaeJang (Korean spicy beef soup) in the food court, I went in search of the skate. Found some at the enormous fish counter, but there was a fellow in front of me who bought all the skate except for the last 2 pieces. After much walking around I decided on some flounder as well, thinking it might be a good substitute if one couldn't find skate. Then home with all my goodies.
And now the cooking commences! The flounder version is on the left, skate on the right.
