Citrus-Flavored Shark

The other day I found something very interesting in the grocery store - shark!  How often do you get a chance to eat something like that?  Problem is that I had no idea how to prepare it.

It looked similar to salmon, which I've done plenty of times before, so I decided to do it the same way.  I did a lot of prep work beforehand since I wasn't planning on cooking it until the next day (which ended up being the following day, as we were out most of yesterday.)

I decided to use citrus flavors, along with Italian.  (You'll see why Italian flavors in a minute.)

I started by making an opening along the center of the fish to stuff the crab meat.  After stuffing them I brushed them with olive oil.

I topped the fish with citrus Bosari, lemon juice, lime juice, and orange juice.  I also topped it with melted butter.

It ended up sitting for two nights like this in the refrigerator.

  I also wanted to try my hand at Cavatappi noodles.  I've had them several times before at restaurants but never prepared them.  I decided to do Italiam spices with diced tomatoes and olive oil on top.

When I do noodles, I like to add in any seasoning and/or olive oil while the water is boiling.

I heated some diced tomatoes to top the noodles.  I would've liked to make this from fresh tomatoes but I really didn't have time, and had some in a can already that needed to be used.

The grill board ended up soaking overnight. 

I put a couple orange slices on the grill to make a garnish.

Oh, and I don't think I've ever shown off my grill glove. 

I think I overdid the tomatoes.  I had intended on just heating them, but they ended up stewing slightly.




The shark tasted great, but very fishy.  If I were to make it again I'd probably do it breaded, with something crunchy like sesame seeds, or something to really overpower the fish flavor.  =o9
