Potatoes and artichokes are always such a winning combination with fish, so I've put them in this dish, using fantastic purple potatoes which I've seen in the supermarket – if you can't find them, ask your local store to get some in. They're a great colour and, served in this way, might help in getting your kids to eat fish if they're not keen. They're not floury and they're not waxy, just somewhere in the middle, so they're great for baking and boiling. Buy the skate as fresh as you can – it doesn't matter if the pieces are large or small, as you'll want to cut them up anyway. Steaming skate makes it really soft, so it will just fall off the bone when done. This dish is just as good when eaten cold as a salad.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
