How to Make Delicious Turmeric Braised Stingray?

Turmeric braised stingray is one of the nutritious and savory dishes that can be found on the dining tables of many Vietnamese families. It is also well-known among foreign tourists. Let’s explore the recipe and how to make it below.

I/ How to Choose Fresh Stingray

To prepare a delicious turmeric braised stingray, you need to know how to select fresh stingrays. You can consider the following tips:

• When buying stingrays, pay attention to choosing healthy and active ones that can swim well. Weak-swimming stingrays are often older, and their meat may not be as tasty and may have a higher acidity level.
• Choose stingray meat that has a medium pink color, not too dark or too pale.
• Fresh stingrays will have good elasticity, so avoid buying parts of stingrays that are already soft or show signs of spoilage.
• In particular, fresh stingrays usually do not have a strong fishy smell. If the smell is too strong, it means it is not fresh.

II/ How to Cook Delicious Turmeric Braised Stingray

• Cooking turmeric braised stingray is not difficult. First, you need to prepare the following ingredients:
• 1 slice of stingray (200 – 300g)
• 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder
• 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
• 2 lemongrass stalks
• 2 chili peppers
• 1 shallot
• 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
• 2 tablespoons of fish sauce
• Common seasonings (salt, MSG, pepper)

Now, let’s get started with this irresistibly fragrant turmeric braised stingray.

Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

Clean the lemongrass and onion, peel them and wash them well. Cut the chili peppers and lemongrass into small pieces.
Rub the stingray with salt and then give it a good rinse to get rid of the slime. Break up the stingray into small pieces that you can easily eat.

Step 2: Prepare the Stingray to Remove the Fishy Odor

Start by taking off the stingray’s gills and blood sacs from its belly. Take the stingray’s fins off, gut it, and wash it to get rid of any slime. Apply salt and wash it again.

Now, take a knife and scrape off the dark part and the black tissue that runs along the spine of the stingray. To clean the stingray again, rub it with salt and then run some water over it briefly.

Then, scrape off any slimy skin that’s still on the stingray with a knife. Next, rub salt on the stingray’s skin and wash it well with salt water mixed with ginger, white wine, or vinegar to get rid of any smell or sliminess that comes from fish.

The last step is to wash the stingray with clean water and let it drain.

Step 3: Marinate the Stingray

Marinate the stingray with finely chopped lemongrass, shallots, 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of MSG, 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder. Marinate the stingray for about 1 hour.

You can adjust the amount of ingredients to suit your family’s taste.

Step 4: Braise the Stingray

Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a skillet and stir-fry sliced shallots, chopped lemongrass, and chile peppers until fragrant. Use medium heat to braise the marinated stingray until it firms up. Add 1 cup of water and braise for 15 minutes until it evaporates.
Braise the stingray over medium to low heat to completely cook and absorb flavors.

Finished Dish

The fragrant turmeric braised stingray dish is now complete. With its savory taste combined with the distinctive aroma of turmeric, this braised dish becomes more enticing than ever. Enjoy your meal!

III/ Notes When Cooking Turmeric Braised Stingray

Follow these techniques to keep stingray nutrients fresh. First, prepare just the stingray you’ll eat in 1–2 days. Longer storage will lead the stingray to emit more toxic chemicals. Take the right quantity of stingray onto your plate with clean chopsticks at each meal. The refrigerator’s cold section may hold the leftover stingray.
