Opah, also called moonfish because of its beautiful deep-bellied almost circular profile, weighs on average about 100 lbs. Its fins, mouth, and tail, are a bright reddish orange, its skin grayish pink with white spots.
Opah is excellent grilled, but it is also great sear-roasted, broiled, sautéed, or baked. It has a firm flesh that has been described as a cross between tuna and swordfish. Opah is high in omega-3 though (pregnant members note) it is also high in mercury. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative."
