My Uncle was in a Shark Tournament this past weekend and got a 379# Mako Shark and a 297# Thresher Shark, both are good eating, so I am looking for some good recipes for shark!

I treat mako like swordfish . We like it simply grilled or pan seared, and finished with brown butter, lemon and maybe parsley. Cook it just through .

That's one big Thresher; gotta be like a 5' tail. :shock:

Like MRM. says, it acts like Sword, but you know that... you fish. His tip is most important; cook to medium well whereas it's still slightly translucent for moist shark or else it's gonna be a dry meaty bite. Pay attention to timing whereas carryover cooking is an issue in this situation.

Yeah, I am going to monitoring the cooking on these...my dad has dried out hot dogs before on the grill...WTF???

My parents don't like strong tasting fish, so I was looking for some sort of marinade to help cover that flavor. Maybe like a Ponzu, Teriyaki, or vinaigrette? I think we marinaded swordfish tips in some Raspberry Vinaigrette before.

TIM <> If it's fresh, I wouldn't call it the strongest tasting fish though it can be pretty "meaty" if over-cooked.

Those are all quick & easy.

Ponzu:
    1 part Soy
    1 part Dashi (water & bonito flake stock)
    1 part Mirin
    grated daikon
    ...bring to simmer gently, strain, season with Yuzu

Teriyaki:
    2 part soy
    1 part water
    1/2 part brown sugar
    1/2 part pineapple juice or Mirin
    minced ginger, garlic, scallion
    ...reduce to desired vicosity

Vinaigrette:
    whatever you want, but watch marinade times with acidic solutions as they will toughen up your final product.

Thanks!! We grilled some Mako tonight in McCormick Mojito Lime Marinade...kept an eye on it and it was nice and moist and tender. The marinade was a bit over powering though.

Warm some olive oil with some fennel seed and peppercorns, add some bay leaf , plenty lemon peel ,garlic scallion salt and pepper . Heat it a bit . Let it cool. Reserve some and slather on the rest for a long while before grilling. Drizzle with marinade and lemon before serving.
