A tropical, warm water fish, Mahi (or Mahi Mahi) is referred to as “dolphin fish” (not to be confused with “flipper”). They get their name from swimming with the mammal dolphin. A full flavored fish with meat that is firm and quite versatile in cooking. Great for grilling, deep frying, stir frying and recently a popular ingredient in tacos. Darker in appearance, the Mahi meat has become increasingly popular for chefs looking for a more exotic variety for their menu.
