Quickie Fried Curry Stingray Recipe


I bought this big stingray cut from the Kepong Baru wet market. First, I thought of cooking Nyonya curry with it but then somehow I decided to fry it instead. Anyway I was also out of lady fingers to go with the curry. My eldest son likes stingray very much, I guess not only it is tasty but there are no sharp bones but cartilages in stingray! Then I cut some chili padi (bird eye chili), add in some light soya sauce and lime juice as dipping sauce for the stingray! Mmmmm, nice Stingray!

Ingredients
Stingray cut, 1 piece, 500 gms
Curry powder, 2 tablespoons
Turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon
Lime juice from 2 limes (limau nipis)
Salt to taste
Serai (lemongrass), optional, 1 pc, pounded into paste

Marinade the stingray with all the ingredients. Put it aside for around 20 minutes. Heat up wok and put in some vegetable oil. I used non-stick pan convenience sake. Fry the stingray with slow heat at first then high heat when it is about to be well done. You can also grill, bake or barbecue the stingray. It tastes great no matter how you cook it! LOL!

Oh My God. you've just made me drool on my keyboard. I haven't had sting ray in SUCH A LONG TIME... like, decades. I miss it so much just covered in curry paste and grilled. Or BBQ'd!

Yup, frying is also good. Here, the ethnic people smoke it - they call it ikan salai! Very nice!!!

tuti said...

fry with the curry paste, will the curry go all over the oil? then later drain the oil ah? or the oil become curry flavored, haha.
i'm so curious i had to ask.
mind you, i waited a day to see if my curiosity bated. apparently not.
