Directions

  1. Cut shark into strips 3/4 inch thick and 3 inches long. Mix canola oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and Cajun style spice mix in a plastic container. Place shark strips in container, and marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Warm tortillas in a microwave to make them pliable.
  3. Drain marinade, and pat shark dry with paper towels. Place a strip of shark at one end of a tortilla, roll tightly, and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer. Submerge taquitos in hot oil. Fry until golden brown, no more than 3 or 4 minutes each. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Place taquitos in a baking dish large enough to accommodate all twelve. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 minutes, or until cheese melts.

This was really yummy! As shark isn't too available here, I used salmon instead and added in chopped green onions before cooking. As I don't have a deep fryer (and prefer not to fry), I skipped that step and just baked them for about 15 minutes(until edges were brown and crispy) - worked perfectly and was still absolutely delicious. Thanks Diana!

Okay, these were very tasty, when all is said and done. However, they were a pain to prepare. If you have the time and patience, go for it.

Very good! I did kind of run with it, though. I substituted tofu for fish and tried to "mexi-up" the seasonings, using lime juice instead of lemon, olive oil instead of canola, and cumin and chili powder instead of cajun seasonings.

I marinated the fish in different salsas, Mango,cranberry and limes for summertime and in the winter added peppers and squashes. It's a good way to get the kids to eat them without them knowing! 2 year old approved!

What a fun recipe! Very tasty with guacamole and sour cream. The taste of shark is very mellow and refreshing.
