Running through the market yesterday, I saw that Shark Steaks were for sale for $3.50/lb. Well, I have never eaten shark before, and I thought I would give it a try. I bought two steaks; they were about 1″ thick and about 1�” to 1�” thick. The smaller one weighed about � lb and the larger weighed about 1 lb. I broiled the shark steaks in the oven after marinating it for 20 or 30 minutes, and it tasted quite good. I did not really like the skin, but the meat was very good and quite filling. I served the fish with mixed vegetables and egg noodles on the side.
Here is the recipe that I used:
- 1� lbs shark steaks
- 3 tbs soy sauce
- 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbs lemon juice
- 2 tbs olive oil
- Black pepper
Mix everything except the shark steaks in a dish or bowl. Add the fish to marinate. I recommend brushing the marinade on both sides and flipping the shark steaks in occasionally. I marinated my steaks between 20 and 30 minutes. Towards the end of your half hour, pre-heat the oven.
Take the shark steaks out of the marinade and place them on a broiling pan, but do not dump the marinade yet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 4 or 5 minutes per inch of thickness per side. When you turn the shark steaks over, brush the marinade on both sides again.
You will want to serve the shark steaks with some vegetables and some rice or noodles.
