Best Way to Clean Shark Jaws?

Submitted by ARW on 11/4/05 at 3:08 PM. ( )

I was wondering if there is anyone who could help me figure out the best way to clean/boil shark jaws. I don't want to have to put the teeth back in afterwards. I currently clean skulls with sodium carbonate. Is that the best way? I don't want to ruin them.

try skinning out the jaws from the head then scrape off as much meat as possible then soak in 50 -50 mix of 40 volume peroxide and water. till meat soaks it up and becomes white. use gloves and scrape all the meat off . Set it up in a jig or on a board and let dry . good luck
