Sweet Ginger Thresher Shark Tacos


Common thresher shark provides a mild, slightly sweet flavor that pairs well with simple to bold seasonings. Its firm, steak-like texture makes a healthy alternative to red meat and is perfect for fish tacos. Feel free to also use mako shark or swordfish in this recipe!

  • 1lb thresher shark, cut into strips about 1” wide
  • 1 root of fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup of ranch dressing
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 lime
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and chopped
  •  Butter
  • 1/2 head of cabbage, finely chopped
  • Corn tortillas

How to Prepare:

  1. In a cast iron or heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat, add about a tablespoon of butter. Add the shark strips to pan and grate fresh ginger over them to taste. Add the sesame seeds and a pinch of salt and proceed to grill shark for 3 minutes per side.
  2. For the cilantro cream: in a bowl mix the mayo, ranch dressing, and chopped cilantro and serrano. Add in some fresh lime juice to taste.
  3. To serve, place a hot tortilla on a plate, add a piece of cooked shark, top with cabbage and follow that with a drizzle of cilantro cream. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
