Batter Fried Shark (From Strictly Business Fishing Charters)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

This is a very light batter that could be used for any seafood. The recipe is from my brother-in-law's brothers' charter fishing business website. I tried it this week and it's my new seafood batter---can't wait to try it on onion rings!

We caught some shark on a fishing charter out of Port Aransas Texas, we did first marinade the shark in buttermilk as an old fisherman told us he always does this but this batter is wonderful. If we get any more shark we will be using this recipe again.
