Big or small, mahi is a real treat on the plate. Like all fish, it’s best when eaten the day of the catch, but the meat freezes well. In the Old Man And The Sea, the main character survives on raw mahi while trying to tame a giant marlin. Around the globe, wherever mahi are found, sailors treasure this fish because it is easy to catch and tastes so great. Most restaurants in the Florida Keys will cook your catch. If you’re the chef don’t get overly creative—just season the white-meat fillets with salt, pepper and lemon and grill accordingly. Remember, the only way you can ruin this fish is to overcook it.
