From the Test Kitchen

If you have never seen a skate wing before it has been filleted, it might not be clear what it is you're eating. Skate is a type of fish that looks like a cross between a shark and ray. It is cartilaginous, which means that, like sharks, skates do not have bones but instead are held together by a substance softer and more flexible than bone. Skate fish have wide flippers that look like the wings of birds. The wing is the part of the fish that is typically eaten, hence the name.
