Shark Steak

I bought a beautiful shark steak at Sprouts in El Cajon this week. I haven't had shark in a while so I was happily anticipating a delicious dinner.
As life would have it, I didn't get to have a shark dinner with all the trimmings, but I needed to cook it last night. I would have preferred to fix it on the grill, but firing up the grill at 9:00 last night was not feasible, (not that I haven't done that before,) so I did the next best thing and broiled it in my trusty little toaster oven. I had it for lunch today and the co-workers I shared it with thought it was pretty good too.

I didn't use the mustard or the sugar. After I ran the fresh ginger over a ginger grater ,I have the blue fish, I grated a clove of garlic right over the ginger and rinsed it all into the marinade with a little more soy sauce. I didn't marinate it for the full hour, probably between half to three fourths of an hour.
