Shark Week: Grilled Mako Shark Steaks
Once that is done, I started working on a side dish to go with the shark steaks. Looking through my fridge, I found a head of cauliflower that I had bought just a few days back and decided to go with that. First, I blanched the cauliflower florets in a pot of boiling salted water just to soften it a little. After removing the cauliflower from the pot and cooling it down with cold water, I added 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 4 cloves of garlic (rough chop), half an onion (diced), salt and pepper. Mixing all these ingredients up thoroughly, I popped them into the oven to roast for about 10 minutes at 350F. To get a nice browning on the vegetables, I finish it up with about 2 minutes or less under the broiler.
