2 (8 ounce)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
I have made this recipe twice. Both times, I soaked the shark filet in milk for at least 10 minutes..then, I have drained, patted dry and baked with squeezed lemon juice and pepper. It is fast and tasty.
Recipe may be good. But I may just not care for shark. My bf and I both couldn't eat it. Very dry and strange flavor.
This is a quick and simple recipe that can easily be complimented with other spices to fit your taste. Soaking in milk may sound strange but it gets rid of the ammonia taste that sharks sometimes have so do not pass up this step!
I will be trying this tonight, but just wanted to clarify that the milk is to remove any fishy odor and/or taste.
For those questioning the use of milk, I didn't use it, I just washed the steaks under cool running water for a few minutes, and then squeezed lime juice over them. And if you don't get a good cut of Shark, forget it. It will be horrible. Look for Thresher shark. Sometimes the butcher doesn't even know what he has.
*EDIT******I'm going to update my review and mention ammonia smelling fish. If your fish smells like ammonia.....it's time to buy your fish in a different place. FRESH fish of any kind should NOT have a horrible smell of ammonia. When in doubt, throw it out.
I have never cooked shark before & this was a great simple recipe. It smelled sooo good when it hit the grill. Will definitely be making this again.
I've never marinated anything in milk but my guess is that is helped keep the fish moist...it was very good
I also have brushed butter on the fillets after turning them once and added lemon pepper seasoning, or it's really good with Cajun Seasoning in place of the salt and pepper.. And yes the marinating in milk is to cut down on any fishy taste. Marinate any wild game meat in milk if you suspect there will be a wild/gamey taste.
