Grilled Shark Steaks
Try something different and grill up some shark steaks. The citrus marinade in this recipe will not overpower the great flavor inherent in the fish.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 6shark steaks
- 1cup orange juice
- ½cup soy sauce
- ⅓cup ketchup
- ¼cup fresh parsley (or cilantro, chopped)
- 2tablespoons lemon juice
- 2cloves garlic (minced)
- 1teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
- ¼teaspoon salt
- ¼teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Oil (with a high smoke point like peanut oil; for greasing)
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, ketchup, chopped parsley or cilantro, lemon juice, minced garlic, black pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes.
Step 3Place fish in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over top. Using tongs, turn shark steaks to coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
Step 4Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Right before placing fish on grill, oil grill grates using a pair of outdoor cooking tongs and folded paper towels soaked with oil. Make about 3 to 4 passes across the grates to ensure a nonstick cooking surface. This is important when grilling fish since it tends to fall apart if conditions are not quite right.
Step 5Remove fish from marinade, reserving marinade. Place fish on preheated grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 F and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
Step 6Meanwhile, pour marinade into a saucepan and bring to a high simmer for 2 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep sauce warm.
Step 7Once fish is cooked, remove shark steaks from grill and serve with sauce and your choice of sides.
