  • Excellent!! Tasty & spicy, exactly how I like it. - 12/2/08

  • This was absolutely wonderful. The flavor is delicious and all the way through. The only problem I had was the amount of time for the shark to cook because I used thresher shark and it is pretty thick, so it needed 25-30 min. Also, I doubled the recipe and I needed a much bigger sauce pan. - 4/7/08
