we get smaller sharks here, such as rig, which i really like. i am not so very into the shark fin trade tho i have to say.
i pan fry rig in butter with some herb salt and mainly eat it like that. since it is a firm fish, i also make thai curries with it. so chop the fish up into cubes and fry it up with onions and garlic ( if you can be bothered to chop them up ), add in some thai curry paste. i find red works best. can of coconut milk. bit of fish sauce. random other seasonings such as grated fresh ginger, chopped fresh coriander. you can add in things like pineapple chunks or different veges like mushrooms too. i then eat it either as a soup or over steamed veges. you can just have it with rice but i dont like rice. you could also put shark in any recipe which calls for a firm white fleshed fish.
