Perfect response. I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't enjoy one of the best tasting fish in the ocean. They're even decent for sushi though a little mild for it.
I usually make mine in the microwave and my family will devour it! I've even eaten it after being frozen for a year; not like fresh, but better than most of the "fresh" fish at the store.

Dolphin has a relatively high incidence of parasites. I don't think you want to eat it as sushi unless it has been frozen for several days at least at -5 or lower. Cooking of course will normally kill off the little critters in the meat.

I love Mahi. I remove the skip and red meat before I wash in water and then dry before vacuum sealing. It last plenty long and taste great. It one of the preferred fish in this area actually. To each his own for those that don't like it but we love it. Of course BSB, Wahoo Grouper all are great. but Mahi have a on my grill anytime!

some people just get ridiculesly particular about fish & wild game also. like the king mackerel haters that wouldn't feed it to a cat. to them I say whatchumean you don't eat fish that taste like fish ? or perhaps they haven't had any that was properly smoked. I live on the eastern shore of va & absolutely one of the favorite fish is flounder why cause it's not fishy. tell a local ya got some crappie from a pond & every time oh I don't eat freshwater fish. why ? oh it doesn't have any flavor
one of my favorites perhaps not #1 but I really like Spanish mackerel yes oily & fishy but in a good way. Spanish Macs grits & eggs for breakfast oh yea. next time ya get some mahi try mixing some mayonnaise soysause pepper & coat fish refrigerate for a few hours then grill

It also has no shelf life. It maybe last two days in the refrig. Grouper will last a week. "wrapped in paper towels/changed daily"

Freeze Mahi..really bad.

I agree. Personally I feel it's overrated.

Just sayin, but doradoi has one of the lowest concentrations of heavy metals and pcb''s of any pelagic fish. They grow so fast they don't have a chance to accumulate the toxins. Tuna on the other hand, is rich in mercury and other nasty metals and compounds.

It's a very healthy fish to eat. But if you are worried about parasites, just give it a deep freeze for a few days. That's what sushi restaurants do with all fish.

I can cook. And still think Mahi Mahi is a c+ or b- as to food quality.

It is if you over cook it! That shit is burnt. Nice print though.

You must learn the art of slow cooking. The fine reduction of supreme sauces and complimenting wines and fruits to create my favorite recipe.

Look up Dolphin Cudjoe "my recipe" and you will burn lots of fuel just to catch one and will hide those fillets from your friends.

Outside of the BS I just posted I can give Mahi a B+ all day if you know how to cook. I have had some to give a A to but it would work with most any fish of that texture and flavor prepared in that fashion.

The best Mahi in my book is around 5 to 7 pounds on the hoof. A good saute compliments fresh mahi fillets. High heat and grills are ok but tend to dry the meat of a non oily fish.

But, we have folks on here eating sail cats so WTF.

The salmon was 125 internal degrees..making it medium rare. The swordfish was 115 internal degrees..making it medium rare. My tuna goes very rare/raw

Looks are deceiving. I sear my salmon on enameled covered cast iron...my grill gets to 1,600 degrees..although my infrared thermometer tops out at 999.

Severly overcooked. How do I know? You can never take mahimahi off a grill when it is properly cooked without it falling apart. 2-3 minutes per side MAX, seasoned with lightly salted and pepper, Old Bay if want a little cayenne. If you get grilled marks in your mahimahi then you have overcooked and destroyed the meat and it will taste like shoe leather. Mahimahi should be the last thing cooked and off the grill as best you can (yes, it will fall apart), on the plate and eat right away. Of course, IMO.

That's salmon and sword. No mahi there. Grill Mark's are made very fast if the grill is hot enough.

We had a big bull hit the flat and the short yesterday. Very aggressive fish that came in with two hooks in its mouth that was 30lbs. It looked perfectly normal, Iced down immediately and had lots of ice in the box where it sat with the other fish until we got back to the dock. When I cleaned it, the meat was definitely spoiled. It smelled fine but was mushy, white and slimy just as you described. No visible parasites could be seen and all the others were fine.
