Fried Stingray (Ikan Pari) With Lemongrass Spicy Sauce

Stingray or "Ikan Pari" relatively is one of the cheapest fish in Malaysia compared to other local catch. Its incredibly versatile - for curries, deep fried, grilled or barbecued. For me, what else except a sambal Malaysian style fish dish - ikan pari deep fried, topped with a lemongrass spicy sauce, garnished with coriander leaves and served with lime wedges. While you are still here, don't forget to see how to make ikan pari/stingray sambal.

350g stingray/ikan pari
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
1 tbsp rice flour

To blend/ground
1 lemongrass/serai
1 inch ginger
5 garlic
5 shallots
1 inch fresh turmeric/kunyit
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
10 dried red chillies
1 inch roasted shrimp paste/belacan (or powdered version)
Oil as needed

For Garnishing:
Coriander leaves - sliced
