Characteristics

CharacteristicsChefs love mahi mahi’s firm texture and mild flavor, along with its great name recognition by customers.  With a flavor similar to swordfish, mahi mahi is fairly firm with large, moist flakes when cooked.  This is a great choice for a grill fish.  Although its skin is beautiful in the water, it’s generally removed before cooking…

For Your Menu

MenuSince mahi mahi comes to us from tropical waters, it’s a natural to pair this fish with fresh fruit salsas or sauces – or try it with coconut or macadamia nuts!

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffMoist, delicious, fresh and carefully harvested – your guests will love mahi mahi!  Its mild flavor pairs perfectly with whatever flavor profile your chef chooses.


For Your Retail Display

Retail Mahi mahi has a beautiful pink colored flesh – looks great displayed between white fleshed fish for a pop of color. Recommend your customers try Mahi Mahi on the grill – tastes great served with a topping of salsa (we love mango salsa with Mahi Mahi).
