Chefs 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 grilled fish. Although its skin is beautiful in the water, it’s generally removed before cooking.
For Your Menu
Since Mahi-Mahi comes to us from tropical waters, it’s natural to pair this fish with fresh fruit salsas or sauces – or try it with coconut or macadamia nuts!
For Your Waitstaff
Moist, 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
Mahi-Mahi has a beautiful pink colored flesh that 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).
