Man Eating Shark!

Good..I caught your attention.

But take this topic in a different light and perspective. Its more like Man eating the Shark..not the Shark turn into a man hunting predator.

Benny bought a couple of shark steaks from the supermarket recently. I decided to have it pan fried and cook this for lunch today. Here's what I did. You can use other types of fish. In case you feel squeamish about having Shark on your dinner table.

Maybe you should point out what sharks would be permissible to eat considering their massively declining numbers... I don't eat shark myself so don't know... There have to be some that are numerous... are there?

hi Sean, its just a pun intended joke used. These sharks are bought from the supermarket in Singapore. I do not know where it came from. I suspected it to be farmed and not from the ocean. because the steaks are length. the slab you see on the plate is the width of the body. That's about 14 to 15 cm. :)

Hi Gina, how does shark meat taste like? Is it like stingray? Or mackeral, cod, salmon?
