Wahoo and Weekend Specialties 8.13.15 August 12 2015 Posted in

We have a pristine Wahoo coming direct from Hawaii on Friday.  Over there they call it “Ono” or “good to eat” and Hawaiians are certainly dead on with the name.  Wahoo have a deliciously fatty and sweet taste with a meaty texture.  There are no organized fisheries for Wahoo, perhaps because they do not school. They’re typically caught commercially as by-catch of tuna and sword fisheries and are most commonly hauled in via long lines.  Wahoo are prevalent all year, but are most common in the summer.  Folks from the Caribbean get a kick out of Wahoo as well.  Check out this Caribbean Wahoo recipe, which pairs the fatty, sweet taste with fiery scotch bonnet and sweet coconut milk.
