  1. Happy Friday Great Cookies!

    I put some mako shark onto my tiny old gas smoker, and having first mopped it through grapeseed oil...

    And I did low heat for 30 minutes (atop a grill grate in the smoker)...and with hickory chips.

    The shark was sensational!

    I layered it over a wheat-free pasta (brown rice spaghetti from Trader Joe's) and with flat leaf Italian parsley, chopped raw shallots, a red pepper, and then much cayenne, gray sea salt, and luscious olive oil!

    I paired this with dry Italian "Gavi" (white wine made of Cortese grape) and it was lovely...(yesterday's smoked frogs' legs got paired with a bottle of this too, and thus I can attest to the wine being FABULOUS with both shark and frog)!

    This was SO SOFT and amazing! My dogs had their own shark steak prior to us (they get fed first, just in case they don't finish as then we could eat, yes)?

    And once I cut into it, I readily saw, that a KNIFE was not needed in any way. This fish could indeed be cut, just with a spoon!

    So twirling and whirling I did go!

    Happy weekend to all!!!!!!!!! And here is to you evoking your inner shark, in good ways, today!!!!!!! Cheers!!!! - Leah

    Beautiful as always Leah! Haven't had any mako in a long time, so might need to remedy that soon! I'll never forget going to a little waterside place on the Florida panhandle many moons ago. The young lady I was with wasn't big on seafood so I told her the " shark bites" I ordered were really just chicken nuggets with a cutesy name. She devoured almost the whole order before I told her she was eating mako shark. The rest I the trip she was intent on trying as much seafood as we could find, including crawfish and oysters on the half shell, all of which she loved.
  9. Thank you so much Andrew!!!

    And while I cannot imagine someone NOT wanting to eat shark; (or anything really), I respect and love the story and also that your gal then ate all kinds of terrific things!

    Here's sending a happy Friday wish your way! Make it delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cheers!!! - Leah

    For a gal who cannot eat wheat, I do eat more "carbs" than anyone I know, smiles, and somehow good pasta with great seafood or fish, is becoming a daily ritual! Here's to that fun!

    Oh my, Leah. This is terrific. I love shark and your treatment of it is stellar. I have to make a trip to the coast and get some!


  15. Thank you tons Disco!!!

    This was so "baby soft" (ERGO: Baby shark perhaps? Smiles) but just beyond amazing! I now think that smoked shark is the best ever!

    To the coast at Godspeed!!
