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 grilled 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 natural to pair this fish with fresh fruit salsas or sauces – or try it with coconut or macadamia nuts!

For Your Waitstaff
