About mahi-mahi steaks

Also known as the common dorado, mahi-mahi is a fish found in tropical and subtropical waters. It's also referred to as dolphinfish, although it has nothing to do with the dolphin family. The name comes from the Hawaiian language for "strong strong," which references the fact the fish is one of the fastest swimmers in the sea. Mahi-mahi has a pink flesh that turns white when cooked, and it has a delicate and flavorful taste.

You might believe that because mahi-mahi are large ocean fish, they're high in mercury. However, that's a common misnomer, as they are actually low in mercury. They do offer numerous health benefits, some of which include the following:
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: This healthy fat benefits the heart and cuts down on inflammation.
  • Potassium: This mineral helps to lower blood pressure and supports muscle function.
  • Protein: As a lean protein fish, a 6-ounce mahi-mahi steak has 31.5 grams of protein and only 1.2 grams of fat. 
  • Vitamin B: This vitamin improves heart health by controlling cholesterol levels. It also supports healthy skin and brain function.

FAQs About Mahi Mahi Steaks

You might think these two fish are interchangeable since they're both firm and translucent fish, but they have some key differences. Halibut is a member of the flounder family and typically prefers cooler waters. Mahi-mahi is found in warmer waters. Also, while mahi-mahi only grow to about 30 pounds, halibut have been known to exceed 200 pounds. Halibut's flesh is usually white, whereas mahi-mahi is pink until cooked.

You can purchase mahi-mahi steaks year-round, but they're most plentiful from April to August, with May being the peak month. One of the main aspects when shopping for mahi-mahi steaks is you want ones that don't smell too fishy. If possible, you want ones that don't smell at all. The fish is pink with red spots or stripes, so avoid ones that have dark brown edges as this might indicate the fish has turned.

You can store fresh mahi-mahi steaks in the coldest part of the refrigerator for up to three days. Make sure you tightly wrap the steaks in plastic before placing them in there. You can also tightly wrap them in plastic and place them in freezer-safe bags or containers. They will keep in the freezer for up to three months.

When you're ready to use the frozen steaks, move them to your refrigerator and let them thaw overnight. Place the steak on a plate in the refrigerator, so it doesn't leak all over your other food. You can also place the steaks in cold water to thaw, but avoid thawing them in hot water as this can result in uneven thawing and ruin the fish's taste and texture.
