  1. Rinse the shark steaks and trim off any skin.
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, thyme, black pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl to form a paste. Spread a thin layer of the soy sauce mixture on both sides of each shark steak. Place on a plate and cover. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Arrange the shark on a baking sheet. Bake the shark in the preheated oven until cooked completely through, about 40 minutes, turning the steaks over once, about half-way through the cooking time.

This was a very tasty way to prepare my shark. Husband loved it, I thought it was a little too salty for me so next time I will switch the garlic salt for garlic powder. I did make one prep change and added all the ingredients to a plastic bag and marinated in the fridge for one hour.

I would not make this again. The marinade is overpowering even on shark. I use Worcestershire often when using lamb or beef, but I thought it was terrible on fish. 2 Tablespoons of pepper was too much, and I am a pepper lover. In my opinion, this is a very poorly conceived marinade, and anyone who cooks fish regularly should be able to do much better. Try salt, a little pepper, lemon, and some tamer spices like a little dill. If you want to go Asian, soy sauce, ginger, orange juice, some sugar, and there you go.

OH MY! This was a great "rub"...I wasn't prepared for how thick it was and we had to actually scrape it off before eating it..but it produced the GREATEST flavor EVER! I will not change a thing to the recipe, just make sure to scrape before serving :)

This was so quick, so easy, and SO GOOD! My husband is a big fan of shark and said this is the best he has ever had. My 9 year old (who had never eaten shark before) said it was just OK - but he still cleaned his plate! I did make some minor changes: marinated in a bag, used garlic powder (figured there was enough salt in the sauces), finely minced a bit of onion (no onion powder), and omitted the thyme. I look forward to trying it as written - except I stand by the garlic powder decision! Thanks for a great recipe!

Amazing !!! I did change it up a bit, as I had more shark than called for, that had to be cooked. Doubled the soy & worcestershire sauces, 3 Tbs. garlic salt, 3 Tbs. chili powder,, 3 tbs. black pepper, minced onion, didn't have onion powder, and omited the thyme. Turned into a " marinade" instead of a "rub". Results were exelent! Let marinate for 2 hours in a freezer bag in the frig and baked as per recipe. Thank-you for sharing a great recipe !!!!! (Will try again, as written. when I have all the ingredients)

Very tasty. My husband said it was a keeper. I grilled it on the BBQ on a small holed grill, basting it toward the end of the cooking time with the leftover marinade and it turned out delicious.

This is the first recipe I have felt compelled to come back and review. It was FANTASTIC. It has minimal ingredients, is quick to make, and is my new favorite recipe for shark!! My family of 6 ate it up and even the little kids liked it.

I chose this recipe for my first time having shark, and I was not disappointed.I did cut down to 1 tablespoon chili powder and black pepper as I don't care for too much hot spices. I will definatly make the rub to try with other meats.
