Last week, shark was on sale. I’ve only had shark once and my husband, never. So, we picked up a loin steak because it looked fabulous and carted it home for dinner that night.
That turned out to be a fantastic idea. The shark was extremely moist and flavorful, “sharky” but not overly so. Definitely worthwhile.
