How to Cook WA Shark
WA seafood ambassador Don Hancey says that West Australian shark fillet is one of the nicest fish you could eat.
“It’s healthy, affordable, sustainable and (as an added bonus) tasty.”
“One of the easiest ways to cook is to dice up a 200g fillet into bite size chunks then wok it along with some healthy vegetables like sliced carrots, onion, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce.”
“It’s also easy to pan fry the shark cubes or grill them on your BBQ.”
