 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      tablespoons   butter
    2      large         shallots -- minced
    1      tablespoon    orange zest -- grated
      1/4  cup           orange juice
    2      pounds        shark steaks -- cut in 1 1/2 pieces
                         milk
    2      medium        zucchini -- cut in 1 1/2 pieces
   12                    pearl onions -- blanched
    2                    oranges
                         peanut oil
    4      tablespoons   dried thyme -- crumbled
 
 Make sauce: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute shallots in it
 until tender, stirring occasionally. Whisk in orange zest and juice. Bring
 mixture to a boil, stir, and remove from heat. Reheat sauce when ready to
 serve.
 
 Grill shark kabobs: Soak shark cubes in milk for 1 hour before grilling. Drain
 fish and pat dry with paper towels. Thread four 10-inch skewers with fish,
 zucchini, onions and orange quarters. Brush with peanut oil and sprinkle with
 1 tablespoon of the thyme. Sprinkle remaining thyme over hot coals. Grill
 kabobs, rotating every 3 minutes until shark cubes begin to flake when tested
 with a fork. Serve on individual platters and pass warm orange sauce at table.
