Deep Fried Shark Recipe
Alright, time for the main event: fried shark bites! And no, we’re not talking about “Jaws” the movie, we’re talking about biting into some delicious shark filets. But hold on, before we dive in, we need to marinate those bad boys.
Shark Filet Ingredients:
- 500 g of shark fish flesh, fish bones and skin removed and sliced into small filets
- 1 tbsp of light soy sauce
- 40 g of ginger, peeled and finely diced
- 4 dashes of white pepper powder
- 2 cups of vegetable oil for deep frying
For the batter:
- 3/4 cup of self-rising flour, sifted with a sieve
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Methods of Preparing Fried Shark Bites Step by Step:
Step 1: Grab a mixing bowl and pour in 1 tbsp of light soy sauce, 40g of finely diced ginger, and 4 dashes of white pepper powder. Mix it all up like your life depends on it.
Step 2: Take your sliced shark filets and lay them out like they’re catching some rays on a beach. Pour the marinade over them and make sure they’re coated like a Kardashian in makeup. Let them soak up that goodness for 10 minutes.
Preparing the Batter:
Now it’s time to get the batter going. It’s like the icing on the cake, the peanut butter to your jelly. You get the idea.
Step 1: Take out a large mixing bowl and add ¾ cups of self-rising flour, ½ cup of water and the egg.
Step 2: Whisk finely until the mixture comes to semi-thick and smooth. If the batter is too thick, you can add up some more water but with this measurement that won’t be needed. If any lumps exist, flatten them with the back of the spoon or spatula.
Frying the Filet:
Step 1: Grab a large mixing bowl and add in ¾ cups of self-rising flour, ½ cup of water and the egg. Whisk it all up like you’re trying to impress your significant other’s parents.
Step 2: If your batter is too thick, don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. Just add a little bit more water until it’s the right consistency. And if there are any pesky lumps, flatten them like you’re taking out your frustration on a stress ball.
Okay, now we’re getting to the good stuff: frying the filets.
Step 1: Take your marinated filets and drop them into the batter like they’re taking a dip in the ocean. Let them coat for a minute.
Step 2: Heat up 2 cups of vegetable oil in a skillet like it’s auditioning for a role in “Hot Tub Time Machine”. Once it’s hot and ready, add in those battered filets and let them sizzle like they’re living their best life.
Step 3: Fry those bad boys until they’re golden brown and crispy like a bag of chips that’s been left in the sun for too long. When they’re ready, drain off the extra oil like you’re the shark’s personal trainer.
Serve them up and enjoy the crispy, tangy goodness that is fried shark bites. Trust us, it’s jaws-droppingly delicious.

Step 2: Now mix it all up, but don’t go too crazy or you’ll end up with shark soup instead of shark balls. Remember to mince those ingredients finely so you can shape them into balls.
Step 3: Time to add the star of the show, cooked shark fish meat. Coat it up like a Kardashian at a red carpet event and start rolling those balls like you’re playing some kind of weird seafood roulette.
Step 4: Grab your deep fryer and pour in some vegetable oil. Just enough to make sure these balls get hot and crispy. Keep that temperature at a medium-high heat, just like the barbeque at your weird uncle’s house.
Step 5: Drop those balls in the oil, but be gentle with them. Don’t want to hurt their feelings, they’re just little shark nuggets after all. Fry them until they turn a delicious golden brown, just like your tan after a day at the beach.
Step 6: Let those nuggets drain on some paper towels or tempura papers. Give them some space, let them breathe. Then transfer them to a serving bowl and bring on the tartar sauce. These nuggets are perfect for any occasion, from a fancy dinner party to a casual shark-themed birthday party.
