Any Ideas For Shark?

For some reason I have a MASSIVE supply of shark in my freezer (thats another story) and I have to cook at least a few chunks every week if I want to finish them before they all go bad.

So I took out a chunk yesterday, deboned it and cut it into several pieces. I thought it'd be a good idea to use the same method as salmon so I sauteed them in garlic and olive oil, chopped italian parsley and sprinkled them ontop along with salt and pepper.

It was terrible! the meat is all dry, fibrish and tastless and the worst part is the italian parsley didnt work with the meat at all! I had to sweep the parsley aside when i ate it because it was waaay too bitter.

What do I have to do to make a nice tasty juicy slab of shark? gotta do something with the dry fibrish meat.

I have broiled shark steak with some mustard/olive oil mix smeared on top.

tenderize.
You can pound the muscle fibers apart.
There are medieval torture looking spiked rollers.
You can stab it repeatedly with a fork (best done to the soundtrack from the movie "Jaws").

I'd say season well, let t seat for a half an hour or even an hour, then grill it, and most importantly do not overcook it.

Maybe a soy-miso or teriyaki

Or olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and fresh herbs

Chili, lime, tequila and cilantro

I just make them up ...

I believe that sharks urinate through their flesh and skin. When they die, the urea converts back to ammonia. Soaking in milk is something I've heard draws out the urea/ammonia. Probably will help with the moisture issue as well.

PS - Now you'll probably be throwing it out.
