Hammerhead Shark (Sphyrna zygaena)

A large shark inhabiting both sides of the Atlantic, and growing up to about 4 metres. It gets its name from its head, which is shaped like a sideways hammer, with eyes set in the projections.

If found on your fishmongers slab treat as swordfish - do marinate in oil, the grill and serve with lemon.
