Sting ray was not a popular fish before, but now the demand for it is so great that its cost has escalated many times more. But we have to eat!
What I Used:
About 700g sting ray, cut into chunks
(Before cutting, remove the black skin(topside) or scrape with a knife to remove the 'dirt'. I prefer to remove the skin. Next scrape the white part(underside) to remove the slime. Rub salt and scrub with hands, then rinse and cut)
1 large onion, sliced
3 to 4 kaffir lime leaves
1 tomato, wedged
To be ground:
2 medium-sized onions
4 dried chillies, soaked and drained
2 fresh red chillies
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon belachan
1 packet coconut cream (I used Kara)
salt to taste
What I Did:
1. Heat oil and saute sliced onions and ground ingredients till the oil comes through.
2. Add fish and stir gently to cover the pieces with the spices.
3. Add some water and simmer till fish is cooked.
4. Add kaffir lime leaves, tomato and coconut cream and some water (depends on how much gravy you want). Add salt and bring to a boil. Remove from stove and serve.
