"if i kill it i eat it if its good or not"

I like this guy! But really, there's much better fish for eating. Like almost all of them.

I hear that you can fut off the wings and eat them. One guy suggested to soak them in water overnight and then grill them with olive oil, salt and pepper.

I like them, the kids like them, but Mrs. Blastmaster says the eyes make her feel sorry for them so she won't eat them.

We bleed them out, and filet the wings. Be sure to cut away the dark part. I cut them into steak size and grill with garlic and butter. Sometimes I blacken them in a cast iron pan.

I think it might be the texture that some people either like or don't. They are a very firm fish, not flakey at all. The muscle grain is across the length of the filet, so it looks different. To me, the meat is more like a cross between shellfish and mammal, and not much like you would expect from a fish.

Our two boys target the rays because they like the taste so much.

Can be easily fixed many different flavorful ways. My favorite is to just beer-batter and deep fry, tastes like scallops. E-mail me your snail mail address and I'll send you a CD I just finished producing on the interesting beast called Myliobatis Californica. It covers things like Spieces ID, Handling when C&R, Handling when C&Keep, Field dressing, Filleting, Packaging, and some recipes. I've given some to PFICers down south so they could give you an idea if it's useful.
Anybody want one of these just send me your Addy and $2.00 (if ya got it or don't need it for GAS money)for disc production costs and shipping (I don't make any $$$$ on these just covering costs) and I'll send ya one. BTW make sure you put BATRAY in the subject box when you send me ur request so my SPAM filter doesn't put it in trash.
