Mahi mahi is still going strong, so we thought we'd feature it this week. Although it is sometimes referred to as dorado or dolphinfish, mahi should not be confused with dolphin (which as you know is a mammal, not a fish). Its Hawaiian name, referring to its swimming ability, means "extra strong."
Because mahi are prolific breeders and fast growers, their population is both stable and sustainable. Their pinkish translucent flesh has a sweet, delicate flavor, moderately firm texture, and large, moist flakes.
Seafood Watch rates mahi mahi a "Good Alternative.” Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
