Mahimahi and Weekend Specialties 6.9.16 June 08 2016 Posted in

On the east coast, summer seafood options get a much needed boost as migratory fish such as tuna, sword and mahimahi make their way up the gulf stream to points up north to take advantage of the warmer water and feeding that comes along with it.  While we are of the humble opinion that U.S. Atlantic fish stocks provide some of the best eating fish around, it’s always nice to see some new faces in the lineup.  As temps start to warm up, we’ve started to see some excellent hook and line mahimahi coming out of the south and mid-Atlantic.  This week’s mahimahi hails from South Carolina and has a moderate flavor with lean and fairly firm, large moist flakes.  Mahimahi is great just about any way you can think to cook it and it tastes even better when it’s caught this close.
