Buying Tips

Quality mahi mahi is easy to recognize. Fresh mahi mahi never smells fishy, and its flesh will give slightly when you press it with a finger, then spring back into shape. When choosing mahi mahi steaks or fillets, whether they’re fresh or previously frozen, look for moist, translucent (never dried out) flesh.


Mahi mahi is a large fish; it is usually sold as fillets or steaks. It is available both fresh and frozen.
