The marinade in this recipe won't overpower the flavor of the fish. Shark has a great flavor, and you'll want to get the most out of it you can. While these steaks are meant to be served as is, you can also shred them and put them in tacos, soups, stews, or wraps.

What You'll Need

  • 6 shark steaks
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup/80 mL ketchup
  • 1 cup/240 mL orange juice
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL chopped fresh parsley (you can also use cilantro leaves)
  • 2 tablespoon/30 mL lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 red pepper flakes

How to Make It

  1. Combine soy sauce, orange juice, ketchup, chopped parsley, lemon juice, pepper, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic. Place fish in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over the top. Using tongs, turn shark steaks to coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.  Right before placing fish on the grill, oil the grill grates using a pair of outdoor cooking tongs, folded paper towels, and a high smoke point oil. Make about 3-4 passes across grates to ensure a non-stick cooking surface.  This is important when grilling fish since it tends to break if conditions are quite right.
  1. Remove fish from marinade, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a saucepan and bring to a high simmer for 2 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep the sauce warm.
  2. Place fish onto the grill and cook for 5 6 minutes on each side or until fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees, and flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Once cooked, remove shark steaks from grill and serve with sauce.
