Pan fry in a little butter 1:30 per side and enjoy.

a lot of what people eat thinking they are getting scallops, is really skate or stingray. lay out the meat, punch out pieces with a thin piece of pipe, enjoy your "scallops".

How did you clean the wings? We tried once, but butchered it up pretty good. But the meat we got was pretty good.

Lobster bait

I've only been stringing it for a decade. Costs about $30 per 55 gallon drun

Sorry, I meant to quote Golden-Arm

The muscle fiber in a scallop runs from flat side to flat side, the muscle fiber in a punched piece of skate wing would be running from one round edge to the other right?

Yeah they say skate wings taste like punkin pie , but I'll never know, cause I won't eat the filthy motherfuckers!

Just because a fish is cheap and plentiful doesn't mean it isn't also tasty.

I don't believe that for a second. Two very different types of meat. Somebody at Red Lobster tell you that?
Link Posted: 10/24/2016 8:42:54 PM EDT
i know scallops tested have found to actually be shark. if you see all of the scallops the same diameter, and same thickness, be wary. skate and stingray meat is okay to eat. i wouldn't eat a lot of it, as it's a bottom feeder. old florida fishing guide books called snook "soapfish", and rated their food quality as poor. i'd taste some fish before i'd just write it off as inedible. well, except for catfish, and tarpon.

I can go on.

I had skate for the first time when I was studying culinary in France. Until then I would kick them back in the water.

Two other "trash fish". Sea robins and spiny dogfish.

You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, skate-kabobs, skate creole, skate gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple skate, lemon skate, coconut skate, pepper skate, skate soup, skate stew, skate salad, skate and potatoes, skate burger, skate sandwich.

I think it's good.

Not true. It's an old wives tale. There's cartilage through the wings, you can't punch out "scallops" through a skate wing. After saying that, skates are delicious. On larger ones, filet the wing like a flounder, dredge and fry "filets", very good, especially on larger skates. Doesn't taste like scallop.

BS. I've eaten a lot of shark, none tasted like scallop, texture not even close. Skate and Ray are delicious, a pain to clean, but good. There's cartilage through the wings, can't just punch out fake scallops.

One of the seasons I worked in Alaska on a longliner, primarily fishing for Pacific Cod, we did Skates because the price was worthwhile. They fucking suck, tore up your gloves and have to be set aside from the cod in a tote to be processed seperately so as to not tear up the cod in the hopper. Any skates over a certain size were kept, the smaller ones were tossed back. The processors would hold em up and cut off the wings and toss the carcass back in the ocean. I was told at the time it was all for imitation scallops, that was in like '95-'96. 50 lb pans of frozen skate wings I never ate any, but we did cod stomachs for traditional Japanese winter soups also.

Same boat killing cod, they changed up the set up as far as the processor/fish hopper from when I was on it.

Fuck no.

Skates are lobster bait and when they found their way into the traps, just stabbed them and tossed the trap back.

Grew up on the water north of Boston. Would never eat those fucking things.

The big ones (raja) make the best lobster bait. Unfortunately their livers get all over the place and can turn the deck into an ice skating rink

Umm, bonito are trash fish. Good for shark bait and fun to catch, but doesn't taste good. Plenty of much better tasting fish. Black/yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, cobia, snapper, grouper, etc.

That would be me. I eat seafood so seldom, I wouldn't know a scallop from a skiier. As long as whatever they bring me isn't actively trying to unass the plate, I don't much care.

Yeah. That's why the charter guys tell you they're trash but ice em down, bring em back then make off with them after cleaning your fish. Lot of trouble for "trash" fish don't you think? Somebody is paying good money for that trash fish sport. If they're trash fish they get tossed overboard twenty miles from shore- not iced down and brought back. Check your facts.
Link Posted: 10/24/2016 10:29:11 PM EDT
Soak that trash Bonito in ice water for 24 hours and try it. Then come back and tell me all about how it's trash fish. You've been eating it, paying a high price for it, and don't know it. Usually on a block of rice or in a roll.

Not sure what kind of "charter" boats you've been on, but I've only seen bonito cut into chunks for shark fishing or cut into strips for trolling, like this:
http://www.floridasportsman.com/2013/08/27/bonito-belly-strip/

Most people would laugh at you for filleting a bonito at the dock with the intention of eating it. I've tried bonito, and it really does NOT taste good.

And lobsters were food only fit for prisoners and slaves back in the old days. Things change.

That being said I've never eaten one, caught a few when I lived in Mississippi. Still have a spine I kept for a toothpick somewhere.

I've eaten fresh bonito, and I've eaten fresh tuna. It's a night and day difference as far as taste. But don't mind my opinion, I've only been around saltwater fishing since I was a kid.

There is a Chinese restaurant I go to that has a pretty good buffet. They used to put these punched out stingray or skate or what ever the fuck it was out and call them scallops. I called them on it a couple of times. They eventually took them off the menu.
