Mahi Mahi

   

 

Mahi Mahi (dorado or dolphin fish)
The most plentiful game fish in the ocean, Mahi-mahi means strong strong in Hawaiian. The distinctions between the males and females are obvious in the shape of the head, and they put on a spectacular aerial show when hooked. The Mahi-mahi displays incredibly vivid colors ranging from golden to green to aqua to silvery blue. They are particularly structure oriented, and if you happen to run across an old cargo net or log that has been in the water for a long time, there may be hundreds of these tasty fighters swimming around it. The Mahi-mahi is caught year round in Hawaiian waters, and range in size from 12-70 pounds.

                            

 

CULINARY DESCRIPTION

Mahi-mahi is an exceptionally versatile fish, having firm, white meat and a delicate flavor. Broiled, poached, baked, sautéed, grilled, or pan-fried, mahi-mahi delivers a truly sensational taste. The National Fisheries Institute suggests that you try mahi-mahi as an appetizer. Cut the fish into squares, marinate them in lime juice, and broil them with garlic butter. As a main course, baked mahi-mahi served with a sweet-and-sour sauce is sure to win rave reviews from family and friends. Mahi-mahi is one of those fish that is wonderful just about any way you can think to prepare it -- from the simple to the complex, minimal ingredients to multiple ingredients, subtle to strong flavors. We love to use seafood in traditional meat and poultry dishes, and we know seafood tacos are not new, but made with mahi-mahi, they're great!
