Directions

  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.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was really yummy! As shark isn't too available here, I used salmon instead and added in chopped green onions before cooking. As I don't have a deep fryer (and prefer not to fry), I skipped that step and just baked them for about 15 minutes(until edges were brown and crispy) - worked perfectly and was still absolutely delicious. Thanks Diana!
