Bake and shark is one of those classic street foods (sandwiches) in Trinidad and Tobago and if you’ve ever had the pleasure of spending a day on the beach at Maracas bay, I’m sure you may have patronized “Richards” or one of the other vendors who made this sandwich so popular.

You will need:
2 lb shark
1 lime or lemon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon green seasoning
1/4 scotch bonnet pepper
1 cup all purpose flour
veg oil for frying (about 2-3 cups)
Note: Save a few drops of the lime or lemon juice for seasoning the shark as well.
If you’ve ever purchased bake and shark in Trinidad and Tobago you’ll know that the condiments are just as important as the sandwiches themselves. So be a bit creative ... top with fresh tomato, red onions, slices of pineapple, fresh lettuce.. and how could one forget the variety of sauces.
