How to Cook Mahi Mahi

Mahi mahi is a large, colorful fish. It is caught mainly in warmer waters, Caribbean, South East Asia and the West coast of North and South America amongs others.

It has been commonly called the dolphin fish, but it is absolutely not related to the dolphin.

It is a white fish and is commonly used like swordfish, tuna, marlin and similar.

Cooking mahi mahi is just like any other firm white fish.

Any recipe you find for swordfish, marlin, tuna etc would also be suitable to cook mahi-mahi. 

You will generally buy mahi-mahi in steaks - it is such a large fish, that it will be cut down into steaks by the fishmonger. As a general rule of thumb, you would buy one steak per person you are cooking for. 

Suitable methods for cooking mahi-mahi are grilling, pan frying, roasting, simmering in sauce (like you would a cod fillet  for instance).

Also, cooking over wood or coals while you're camping would be amazing! Maybe on the beach on a lovely summer evening, when you can be with a  group of friends, just enjoying the sea air and some good food - there's nothing better than good food and good company.

You can use any recipe that you find for white fish other than a recipe where the fish is rolled - those sort of recipes are really only suitable for flat fish.
