Mahi-mahi is typically sold, fresh or frozen, as steaks or fillets. Mahi-mahi fillets may be recognized by the row of red spots in the flesh. Plan to buy 1/3 pound fillets or steaks per serving.

Mahi-mahi has firm, large-flaked, sweetly moist flesh. For the mildest flavor, remove the skin and cut away the dark, lateral line before cooking. It may be prepared by virtually any method.
