Wanna catch a devil tonite?
Recently, I was pleased to find stingray at one of my regular Asian fishmonger shop but the name stated as Skate Wings. Stingray to us also known as devil fish 魔鬼鱼 in Chinese, I suppose the name originated from Devil Ray. My dad never eats this fish as he said this is an evil creature, with its strange looks and unique feature of flying and not swimming in the ocean J
But to us, this devil is really tasty to eat if you know the right way to cook it. Stingray is best cook in curry or sour and spicy sauce (Assam Pedas). However, since I have six years old to consider, I have to forgo my spicy taste buds and opt for a change. So, mummy needs to think of something non spicy let see…….
