Food stuffs – Fried Shark recipe

Something I don’t mention much but you’ll see a lot of on Instagram is my obsession with food.  Yeah, I enjoy cooking too.  Having three girlfriends actually makes me remind myself that when one of them is present I have to actually make food that tastes good and isn’t boring or the same old steak and buffalo with fries.

Fried Shark and Wine

Recently I tried shark.  Not sure what type of shark Dekalb Farmer’s Market has, but I know what I’m eating is steak sized basically. I bought a few pounds worth when it was on sale a few weeks ago and now that I’m back from DragonCON, I’m cooking again.

I was curious to know if you could fry shark.

Found this recipe:

Lb. of Shark

Dash of garlic powder

Dash of salt and black pepper

Dash of paprika

1/2 cup of flour

Sprinkle the garlic powder, paprika and salt/pepper on the shark, then coat in flour and fry in vegetable oil.  

I used olive oil and Hungarian Paprika.  I have Spanish Paprika too. I wasn’t terribly thrilled to be honest.  I doubled the “dashes” but kept the flour the same. It was good but my better efforts went to the curried potatoes I’d made along with the shark.

I served with Chromatose 2016 Bergermac from France but I was hoping the recipe had more power to it. I’m a cigar smoker,  I like power!  Next time I’m going to find a variant and see what I can do.
