Grilled Shark to Die For

"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."

  1. 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..
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I thought this was pretty good. I don't think the ketchup was something I would add again though.
  5. This was pretty good. Are shark steaks just salty?


Hey Everyone! Greetings from Sunny Singapore! I'm am so glad to have found this site. It is waaaayyy better than other sites I've been. I have about 240 cookbooks and my faves are the older cookbooks I got from my mom as I prefer from scratch cooking. I have created several cookbooks dedicated to the use of eggs. I have come across a number of recipes requests for using up lots of eggs. So there they are. The above is a picture of me at my office's Annual Christmas cum costume party. I won first prize with that orange costume! The one with the (fake) Tattoos was taken in Dec 2007 when I again won first prize. I love spicy food and the many different kinds of chilli dips different foods calls for!! Love baking, cross stitching, trying my hand now in shoe beading and patchwork and now doing a course on aromatherapy. Oh and am now trying to raise a flower and herb garden but it is not easy as I am a newbie at that too! In some of my recipes, you will note that there is a letter in brackets at the beginning of the name. This is what it means : (A) : Aromatherapy/Homeopathic/Less toxic I'm not crazy about recipes using pre-mix cakes as I am a more from-scratch person. My recipes will have the local name (when applicable) as well as the anglicised name, eg "Au Nee (Sweet Yam Paste). If I had a month off, I'd be in Texas.
