Firm, flavorful and delicious, mahi mahi practically embodies the term “ocean treasure”. Hailing from the seas around Hawaii, this fish is highly prized as a gourmet ingredient, whether grilled on the barbecue, battered and baked, or chopped up to make delicious fish tacos.
Its scientific name is Coryphaena hippurus: a beautiful-sounding name for a beautiful fish. Reaching a weight of 7 to 13 kilos on average, these oddly-shaped fish shine with amazing ocean colors, from blue at the dorsal fin to tropical green at the belly and a strip of gold on their side, earning them the Spanish name “dorado”, or golden. At first, mahi mahi was bycatch- that is, while fishing for tuna and swordfish, mahi mahi would be incidentally caught and then sold as an afterthought. Over the years, a commercial fishery for it has developed on the fish’s own merits- its firm flesh and incredible flavor make it an ocean delight that Gourmet Secrets is proud to offer to families across Canada!
