Mahi-mahi are large, well traveled fish. They can migrate thousands of miles throughout their lifespan. At times, they will pursue high-speed prey such as mackerel, flyingfish, and even younger mahi-mahi. Other times, they simply coast around looking for an easy meal on the surface like bugs, small crabs, and shrimp living on floating algae.
Mahi-mahi is a favorite food fish for a reason. The firm steaks are easy to cook and have a sweet flavor. They’re great for the oven, the grill, or the pan. For a taste of summer, try grilled mahi-mahi tacos with tomatoes, lime and cilantro.
