The stingray's many habitats include the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North America. It is characterized by a flat body and long, infamous tail. While most people searching the ocean waters will watch these large creatures, catching a stingray can be an angling adventure as some reach 100 lbs. After catching a stingray, you can cook the meat to enjoy a moist, flavorful dish that complements any meal.

Step 1

Soak the stingray meat in a salt solution consisting of 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons of salt and leave in the refrigerator overnight. This salt solution removes potential ammonia flavors in the meat.

Step 2

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Step 3

Remove the stingray meat from the salt solution, rinse with cold running water and dry with paper towels.

Step 4

Cut the meat into small strips ranging about 5 inches long and 3 inches wide.

Step 5

Combine one egg and 1/2 cup milk in a mixing bowl and whisk together.

Step 6

Crush 20 saltine crackers in a mixing bowl.

Step 7

Preheat a skillet to medium heat and spray with a nonstick cooking spray.

Step 8

Dip the stingray meat into the egg and milk mixture before coating with cracker crumbs on both sides.

Step 9

Place the coated meat in the heated skillet and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 10

Flip each fillet with a tongs and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

Step 11

Remove from the skillet and place on a paper towel to cool before serving.
