Smoked stingray with garlic and sage butter

We don’t show a lot of fish on our channels, and that is mainly because it isn’t a popular topic. But I love to eat and cook fish, especially when it’s from the barbecue.
I smoked some stingray filets and served it with fresh pasta and grilled vegetables, and it was absolutely delicious.

  • 1 whole stingray or filets
  • 100 gram butter
  • 3 tbsp sage leaves fresh
  • 10 piece canned anchovies fillets
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp Fleur de sel
  • 1 tsp pepper


  • Cut the stingray into filets, or let the fishmonger do this for you. If you want to give it a try, just watch the video on how to do it.
  • Start your smoker with a temperature of 100ºC/212°F. Clean the grates thoroughly and wipe them with some olive oil.
  • Put the filets in and smoke them to a temperature of 45ºC/113°F.
  • Chop fine the anchovies, do the same with the garlic. Sprinkle some salt on the cut garlic and use the tip of your knife to mash it into a paste.
  • Put this with the sage leaves and the butter in a bowl. Use a fork to mix it all.
  • Place the bowl in the smoker next to the fish so it can melt. Then you brush the stingray filets with it.
