You're right, Mroskam. I'm a fairy because I got over killing things for the fun of it when I was 12 years old. Have at it you stud.
If you like kidney pie, you'll love ray wings. If the taste of urea is not to your liking, they're not worth messin' with.
Gettin a lil fired up now are ya?
I'm pretty much into eating anything but I think I would rather eat a skunk than a cow nosed ray. We cut one up with intent to eat it but that's as far as we got............Gary
Every rose has it's thorns.
Throw the ray away and put a good steak on the grill.
I've read all the suggestions and can tell you from experience they can be excellent if prepared properly.
I have eaten EVERY one I have ever caught or had given to me. ( DOZENS!)
I have a sure fire way that will make them taste AWESOME!.
Cut the wings off and there will be blood. LOTS of it
fillet the meat off the top and bottom of the wings by cutting along the cartilaginous wing ray
Fillet off the skin of each wing
cut the 4 triangles into small 1 X 1 chunks and rinse the meat with a lot of water ( a garden hose and out side is perfect) Small chunks aloow more of the blood and uric acid to leave.
rinse until water runs clear. it make take rinsing for 30 minutes or longer.
You can then freeze and prepare later.
take the 1 x 1 chunks and place in boiling water for 3 minutes. (Parboiling)
drain meat well
Mix flour & old bay 2/3 flour to 1/3 old bay
coat the chunks in the mix and deep fry for 15 minutes
a couple of notes. the meat could be tough without the parboiling
A naturalist/fantastic cook at Point Lookout State Park gave me this recipe 30 years ago.
