This is an adopted from the Great Adoption of 2005. I have amended the amount for soy sauce to 1/4 - 1/2 cup as feedback has shown that some found it quite salty. Thank for trying, guys! Total time for this is 2 hours 15mins.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine soy sauce, orange juice, catsup, chopped parsley, lemon juice, pepper, and minced garlic.
  2. Add fish; cover and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.
  3. Remove fish from marinade, reserving marinade.
  4. Grill fish over hot coals 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with marinade.

Fairly good recipe. I found that I needed to marinate the shark steaks for 3 hrs, because i used the goerge forman grill to cook it.I also found that adding 1 1/2 Tbsp. of sugar(for 2 servings) balances the acidity of this recipe very well..The portions of steak that i cooked were 2 1/2 inches thick and it took me 28 min to cook on the george forman grill..

This recipe very nearly works as it is. I didn't want to add sugar because I didn't want to blacken the fish, but after 1 steak, I added 1/2 again as much catsup and about an extra 1/4 cup of orange juice, to try to cut the saltiness of the soy. It more or less does the trick. Perhaps try cutting the soy sauce down just a tad.

Very tasty - we had never had shark before. the marinade is excellent, I wish the shark steak had had that flavor all the way through. It took close to 30 min on each side on the broiler pan @ 350 degrees. I think shark meat must be very salty flavored.
