Salt and pepper fillet.
Dredge the fillet in flour. It only needs to be lightly covered so make sure to remove any extra flour.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil or clarified butter in a pan over medium heat.
Place the fillet in the pan and watch out for curling. Skate fillets tend to curl (more so if the heat is too high or the fillet too small) and can get to the point where it curls completely up. While it would still taste delicious, it wouldn’t look all that appetizing. If it starts to curl just hold it down with a spatula until it calms down.
Cook the fillet for about 2 to 3 minutes per side. You want it nice and golden brown.
Place the fillet on a paper towel to drain off the excess oil.
Flip and brown other side
Place 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan and cook it until it is brown. Remove the pan from the heat, add in 2 tablespoons of capers, and drizzle the butter over the capers
