This Weeks Feature

Mahi Mahi

A fast growing, surface-dwelling pelagic, also known as Dorado, or Dolphinfish (unrelated to actual dolphins), these fish prefer subtropical waters worldwide and are currently being caught for you in Pacific waters off of Ecuador and Guatemala, landed in Jaramija & Manta, Ecuador or San Jose, Guatemala.

Ecuadorians prefer dayboat harvesting of Mahi, using small artisanal skiff or panga fleets, where each boat has 2-4 crew members aboard. The shorter day trips ensure the fish caught will return to port within 24-48 hours, when they are still at the height of freshness. These shorter trips enable the fishermen to maintain the quality of the fish, which ultimately results in preserved color and texture.

Mahi has a pink flesh that cooks up white, firm, with large flakes. The flavor profile is mild, slightly sweet and is served best grilled, sautéed, or baked. (It is most recommended to remove it’s tough, thick skin before preparing). Most popular applications are pairing the fish with bright, citrus notes, blackened, and into tacos with sweet/hot elements.
