Shark Bites Recipe

Shark Bites Recipe

Since eating sharks, and especially shark fins, is frowned upon due to their marked decline in population, recipes calling for shark now use other types of more plentiful fish. To celebrate the glory that is “Shark Week” and “SharkFest,” while making a more conscientious choice, try out this recipe for “shark bites.” These shark bites are made with yellowfin tuna chunks that have been blackened and grilled. These are great served with green ranch sauce.
