Sharks are known to live in warmer waters, so places like the West Indies, and in Florida, Australia, Hawaii are known to have them. In the West Indies however one of the few places known to eat sharks. Here is a recipe that can work for almost every type of shark including “Jaws” the famed white shark. The best shark to cook is the white shark. This recipe is a tradition that is been popular in every family in Trinidad and Tobago, where I am from this has been cooked in many family events, Sunday dinner, or for a holiday. It has been passed down from generation to generation and I am no exception to this. I have enjoyed this dish for all twenty-one years of my life and it means as much to me to cook as it is to eat it is my favorite dish and it is one of the first dishes I was thought by both my grandmother and my mother. Fried shark can be eaten with plain rice (white rice), fried rice, or even with French fries. To drink fried shark is good with a glass of wine white or red, sparkling wine or juice, or even a tall glass( or bottle) of beer for kids it goes well with soda ( all kinds) , juice (which ever you like). This is a very vise tile dish and can be used under every occasion. A little known fact about shark and other fish it is a good source of Omega-3 which is good for your brain and taste good too.
