  1. Cut shark into strips 3/4 inch thick and 3 inches long. Mix canola oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and Cajun style spice mix in a plastic container. Place shark strips in container, and marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Warm tortillas in a microwave to make them pliable.
  3. Drain marinade, and pat shark dry with paper towels. Place a strip of shark at one end of a tortilla, roll tightly, and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Heat oil in a deep fryer. Submerge taquitos in hot oil. Fry until golden brown, no more than 3 or 4 minutes each. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Place taquitos in a baking dish large enough to accommodate all twelve. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 minutes, or until cheese melts.

I marinated the fish in different salsas, Mango,cranberry and limes for summertime and in the winter added peppers and squashes. It's a good way to get the kids to eat them without them knowing!...

What a fun recipe! Very tasty with guacamole and sour cream. The taste of shark is very mellow and refreshing.

this taco had an interesting combination of ingredients but the taste was simply delicious

Really awesome! I used the fish we caught recently at a local lake & some ocean perch instead of shark. Great recipe. Be sure to heat the corn tortillas well or they fall apart when trying to...
