Purchasing Mahi Mahi
  • When purchasing Mahi Mahi at your local grocer, you should never be able to smell it. If the Mahi Mahi is a strong fish scent to it, it has been sitting out too long, and won’t have a clean fresh taste.
  • It should look pink with red stripes or spots on it. Occasionally, it will have a blueish tint to it, but if your store’s Mahi Mahi color seems a little off, I wouldn’t recommend purchasing it.
  • Don’t purchase the Mahi Mahi if the edges are brown and blue. This indicates that it has been sitting out for too long, and is starting to go bad.
  • The skin of the fish should be moist and shiny, not flaky and dry. You should be able to see the shine on the fish, very clearly.
Storing Mahi Mahi
    • Fresh Mahi Mahi from the store, is best used within three days. If you aren’t using it the day you are purchasing it, wrap it tightly with saran wrap or foil.
    • Mahi Mahi will also freeze well. Again, wrap it tightly with multiple layers, and use within 5 months of freezing.
