Love Mako shark. This belly slice was $6.95 / lb. at the Restaurant Depot. Made the salsa with our own cilantro, jalapeno and habanero from the garden. and home made 4-cheeses max and cheese. Shark was the most firm textured fish I have had (even more so than sword which is 2X the price.)

Philly I sure wish there was one of those restaurant supply stores near me! :mrgreen:

Central Market may carry some of that but they ain't cheap.

Sakes alive! That meal looks fantastic! 8)

Philly - good job on the shark, and you're bang-on with the description too. :cheers:

Mako shark is my favorite fish to grill, next to salmon. Having done a fair bit of scuba diving when I was younger, I like the idea of eating something that given the right conditions would likely try to eat me. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Nice job with an underappreciated protein, PJ!

I've only had shark a couple of times but I remember it having a firm texture and mild flavor. It's nonexistent in the stores around where I live but it's not like I can't go into Madison and find some.

Yeah ... We'll bring in great white's to and do a Jaws sequel.
Really good salmon, lake trout, and steelhead come out of Lake Michigan and they're just starting their Fall spawning runs.
Many other nice species in Lake Michigan and the other Great Lakes. They've come a long way from where they were 35 or 40 years ago.
