Mahi-mahi for deep-sea fishing

7 July, 2012 ,

Mahi-mahi – also known as dorado, or dolphinfish – is a predatory fish that lives in tropical and subtropical waters of all the oceans. The average adult mahi-mahi is 1.5 meters long and weighs 20kg, but it can reach up to 2 meters and 40kg.

This vibrantly coloured, incredibly fast and powerful fish (the term mahi-mahi means “very strong” in Hawaiian) is a sheer delight for deep-sea sport fishermen.

In this photo, the two co-founders of SOS Cuisine, Pierre and Cinzia, are returning from an epic deep-sea fishing expedition off the coast of Puerto Rico, a few years ago. Here they are, proudly displaying their catch: Two magnificent mahi-mahi, one male, bigger and more colourful, and one female, equally frenzied when reeled in.

Although it was once available only in the most happening restaurants, it is now easier to find in the market, because its firm, whitish to pink coloured flesh, and its delicate and slightly sweet flavour are greatly appreciated.

You can prepare it in many ways, even on the barbecue. However, it should be cooked quickly because, like all lean fish, it tends to dry out quickly.

Mahi mahi is one of my favorite fish. You’ve got to try ginger glazed mahi. It is totally awesome.
Cheers,

The mahi-mahi seems quite a fish and I imagine it is quite exciting to fish just because of their immense strength.
