  • Mix together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, thyme, black pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl to form a paste. Spread a thin layer of the soy sauce mixture on both sides of each shark steak. Place on a plate and cover. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Arrange the shark on a baking sheet. Bake the shark in the preheated oven until cooked completely through, about 40 minutes, turning the steaks over once, about half-way through the cooking time.

This was a very tasty way to prepare my shark. Husband loved it I thought it was a little too salty for me so next time I will switch the garlic salt for garlic powder. I did make one prep change and added all the ingredients to a plastic bag and marinated in the fridge for one hour. Read More

I would not make this again. The marinade is overpowering even on shark. I use Worcestershire often when using lamb or beef, but I thought it was terrible on fish. 2 Tablespoons of pepper was too much, and I am a pepper lover. In my opinion, this is a very poorly conceived marinade, and anyone who cooks fish regularly should be able to do much better. Try salt, a little pepper, lemon, and some tamer spices like a little dill. If you want to go Asian, soy sauce, ginger, orange juice, some sugar, and there you go. Read More

OH MY! This was a great "rub"...I wasn't prepared for how thick it was and we had to actually scrape it off before eating it..but it produced the GREATEST flavor EVER! I will not change a thing to the recipe just make sure to scrape before serving:) Read More

This was so quick so easy and SO GOOD! My husband is a big fan of shark and said this is the best he has ever had. My 9 year old (who had never eaten shark before) said it was just OK - but he still cleaned his plate! I did make some minor changes: marinated in a bag used garlic powder (figured there was enough salt in the sauces) finely minced a bit of onion (no onion powder) and omitted the thyme. I look forward to trying it as written - except I stand by the garlic powder decision! Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Amazing!!! I did change it up a bit as I had more shark than called for that had to be cooked. Doubled the soy & worcestershire sauces 3 Tbs. garlic salt 3 Tbs. chili powder 3 tbs. black pepper minced onion didn't have onion powder and omited the thyme. Turned into a " marinade" instead of a "rub". Results were exelent! Let marinate for 2 hours in a freezer bag in the frig and baked as per recipe. Thank-you for sharing a great recipe!!!!! (Will try again as written. when I have all the ingredients) Read More

Very tasty. My husband said it was a keeper. I grilled it on the BBQ on a small holed grill basting it toward the end of the cooking time with the leftover marinade and it turned out delicious. Read More

Before trying this recipe I will admit that I had never had shark before. I soaked the shark steaks in milk for a couple of hours beforehand to reduce the "fishy" smell (after coming across this tip online). I rinsed the steaks and patted them dry. I made the rub as directed using dried thyme instead of the fresh. I grilled the steaks for about 15 minutes on non stick foil over medium heat. The thicker steaks failed to cook all the way through so unfortunately they had to be nuked. They turned out pretty well. As mentioned in a previous review we did have to "scrape" some of the spices off. Good flavor though. I will definitely try this rub on other types of meat but I don't know that I will be doing it again with shark. Read More

I chose this recipe for my first time having shark and I was not disappointed.I did cut down to 1 tablespoon chili powder and black pepper as I don't care for too much hot spices. I will definatly make the rub to try with other meats. Read More
