Fried Stingray Recipe

Some people do not eat stingray because of the high urea content in the flesh and it is suppose to be detrimental to one’s health. The urea concentration is higher than sea water salt content, so pure water actually goes into the body of the stingray through osmosis process instead of flowing out like other normal fishes in the sea. Don’t let me scare you with this findings.........stingray still taste good, so is ok to eat moderately. There are many recipes for cooking stingray and the easiest is to fry it. I love to eat stingray fried with some turmeric and curry powder.

Ingredients
Stingray Cut, 1 piece
Curry powder, 1 table spoon
Chili paste, 1 table spoon
Turmeric (kunyit), ½ table spoon
Lemongrass, 1 pc, pound finely
Lime/lemon, 1pc, use the juice
Sugar, ½ teaspoon
Salt to taste
Soya sauce, 1 teaspoon
Butter, 1 teaspoon
Oil for frying

Marinate the stingray with curry powder, chili paste, turmeric, lemongrass, lime juice, sugar, salt and soya sauce. Heat up wok and fry the stingray until it turns golden brown. Take out the stingray from the wok and spread some butter on it evenly. Taste good if eaten with some birdeye chili (cili padi) with soya sauce and lime juice. Note : You can also grill the stingray, instead of frying it.
