Fishing for Spiny Dogfish on the Puget Sound
BY Thomas Swimme
The excitement of catching a shark is a joy that is still just as vibrant today as it was when I was a child. I can remember early morning salmon fishing trips with my uncles and cousins when I’d let my line drift a little too deep and end up hooking into a spiny dogfish. While this was not ideal on a salmon fishing trip, nor appreciated by my relatives, catching a shark was one of my greatest thrills. I’m still not sure if dogfish was my first fish but I am sure it was my most prized. The way they circle back and forth when being reeled in and the first sight of a fin or an eye has always given me the chills…..
FRIED SHARK FILLETS WITH SAUTÉED PEPPERS AND CILANTRO CHIMICHURRI
- 6 ears of corn
- Olive oil
- 4 large bell peppers (red, yellow, orange), sliced
- 2 large onions, sliced
- 2/3 head of garlic, chopped
- Salt and pepper
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 spiny dogfish, filleted and prepared
- All-purpose flour
- 3 lemons
Cilantro Chimichurri, recipe follows
- Boil the corn. Drain and put into ice bath. When cool, cut off kernels and reserve.
- Put pot over medium-high heat and add olive oil. When heated, add peppers and onions, stir, reduce to medium heat and cover. We are not trying to color the vegetables so keep the heat low and stir regularly.
- Add the chopped garlic, salt and pepper. Add corn to warm. Add juice of 1 lemon to brighten the flavor.
- Heat a skillet with a generous amount of oil over medium-high heat. Cut the shark fillets into 4-ounce portions. Pepper and flour each portion and pat off excess (the meat is strong enough not to need salt). When oil is hot enough, fry fillets until golden and crisp on both sides.
To Serve: Place the fillets over the bell pepper medley on the plate. Squeeze lemon juice over the fillets. Spoon chimichurri sauce around. Tailor the amount of chimichurri sauce to balance the flavor of the fish. Serve with a grassy New Zealand sauvignon blanc or light Moscato to pair with the chimichurri and combat the saltiness of the shark fillets.
- ¼ cup Champagne vinegar
- 1/3 head of garlic, chopped
- 2 lemons
- 1 large bunch cilantro, minced
- 1/3 bunch parsley, minced
- 1 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper
In a bowl combine vinegar, chopped garlic, juice of 2 lemons, honey, cilantro and parsley. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
