They're caught all too often

They're caught all too often as a by-catch, you don't have to try to catch them =)


I've eaten a Grey ray before. Battered it and deep fried and it tasted like shark with a bit more sweetness to it.

Other people who've tried eating stingrays say it was terrible tasting so... not sure what the deal is


What I can tell you though is the slime on them is absolutely putrid and if it gets in your clothes/shoes you may as well just throw them out. Just thinking about the smell makes me nauseous

Chilli Stingray

In Singapore, always first feed is Chilli Mudcrab, then next night chilli Stingray, superb


As an aside, you eat stingray more often than you know. The faux scallops are generally punched out circles from the flaps

 I ate a small ray once when I had no fish at was delicious! a bit of prep (you have to peel the upper and lower skin) but other than that, ezcellent tasting fish!
