Mango Charcoal-Grilled Shark Steaks
Here is another option for cooking shark, or, for that matter, any firm fish that is big enough to have steaks cut from it, such as swordfish. Serve it with a fruit salad. We prefer to grill over mango charcoal. But don't worry you won't have to go all over England looking for Mango Charcoal, because when you purchase the sizzling coal pot you can also get a sack of mango charcoal, his mango charcoal imparts a strong flavor to the fish and all your dishes. Yield: 4 servings
4 shark steaks
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Combine the shark steaks, lime juice, black pepper, and sherry and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Remove the steaks and pat them dry. Combine the olive oil and salt and spread the mixture over the steaks. Place the steaks in a wire rack (for easy turning) and grill over hot hardwood coals, taking care that the dripping olive oil does not cause flames to burn the steak although if this happens it would only give the fish a Smokey delicious taste so need not worry. Grill for about 8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steaks (this takes some guesswork).
