Mahi Mahi is not as common in the UK as it is in the USA. It’s fish is a beautiful fish that is not only sustainable but very easy to cook. It has a firm white flesh that is fairly mild in flavour. This makes it quite adaptable, hearty enough to grill and yet firm enough to sear, glaze, fry, etc. Great for Fish Taco’s (recipe available see posts) and for pan frying!
