Tribute to Steve Irwin: Grilled Sting Ray
Thursday, September 07, 2006In tribute to Steve Irwin, a legendary icon of Down Under Australia and one of the bravest souls I had seen. I am posting a recipe for Grilled Stingray. I ate a stingray a few days ago as a gesture of revenge for Steve. How dare the stingray take away Steve. I will devour your kind and take pleasure in it.
This is just a small stingray - but usually in Western Socities, they are often thrown back to sea or used as bait. However, in South East Asian countries, they are considered a delicacy and usually grilled on banana leaves and seasoned with prawn paste, limes and herbs.
They are usually bought at night markets and grilled on the spot for your dining experiences. For two people, usually it costs around $10. It depends on where you eat of course. Singapore is one example of a good place to eat grilled stingray. In Brunei, usually it's at the Gadong Pasar Malam, or Seria Pasar Malam(on Fridays). They are sold out pretty fast though so it's better to be there around 4:30 to 5:00 pm. If you are interested to buy your own and cook yourself - here's the recipe.

The top two are just other pictures of grilled stingray with the tasty sauce on other websites. So let's grill those stingrays and have one of those great culinary experiences, and of course, we played a small part in getting back at the stingray who took Steve Irwin's life.
*smacks lips* Tasty morsel, yet so lethal.
