Shark

Collection of shark recipesjump to the recipes

Shark isn't a popular eating fish in the U.S. for some reason. Maybe it's due to our sensationalist movies about them being so vicious, I'm not sure. It is, however, extremely popular in other cultures and has been for centuries.

You can buy shark cut in fillets, steaks, or chunks. Very small varieties of shark are sometimes sold whole.

Some species have a slight ammonia smell to them which can easily be remedied by soaking the fish for a few hours in milk or water mixed with lemon juice.

The shark flesh has no bones, so if you are easily turned off by bony fish this might be a good choice for you. It's a very dense and meaty-textured fish, similar to swordfish. It holds its shape when cooked making it perfect on the grill. It can also be broiled, baked, poached and fried. Shark is also extremely low in fat. The first time I had shark was when we grilled it when we went camping one time. I know, seems like odd food to drag to a campsite, but it was the best meal and our friends were jealous (apparently their hot dogs weren't as exciting).

If you can't get shark at your local fish market or grocery store, try substituting swordfish, mahi mahi, or tuna in place of it in these recipes.
