TASTE & FLAVOR: Distinct sweet and moderately mild flavor with a fairly firm texture with large and moist flakes. Rich in vitamin B's an omega-3's.
PREPARATION: The soft texture of the meat enables Mahi Mahi to stand up well to baking and grilling. Can also be sauteed, broiled or fried. Our favorite recipe get pan hot, pat fish with paper towel, sear on one side longer to develop the crust, then flip the fish over and cook the second side for just a few minutes more. After the fish is cooked, add some lemon juice, garlic, and salt and scrape up those tasty browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Then add some lemon slices and finish the sauce with butter, but leave it on the heat just until the butter is melted.
