This wonderful name is from Hawaii, but in fact this fish is known in all warm seas world-wide. Elsewhere you might have come across it as lampuki, lampuga, dorado or dolphin fish (although it’s nothing to do with dolphins). It’s main feature is a towering forehead. It also has an exquisite turquoise, green, yellow and silver skin over a firm but flakey dark flesh which cooks to an attractive off-white. It can attain 30-40kgs and 1.5 metres in length, so even a smaller specimen yields 10 to 20 satisfying no-nonsense fillet portions. The mahi-mahi is great when pan-fried with lime juice and Jamaican jerk seasoning.

- "My first order with to Fish Society and the Mahi-Mahi was one of four items I ordered. It was very good. Having recently returned from Costa Rica where I had been eating fresh fish every day it was great to have the same taste at home here in the UK."
