The dolphinfish. No it’s not really dolphin! Mahi-Mahi has always been a super great choice for protein. It’s super firm, tender, moist, and not a threatened species. I like mahi because it is mild in taste and not overly fishy tasty or smelling. There are tons of ways to cook it. Blackened, broiled with garlic and lemon, sauteed. Choosing mahi for a lean protein is a smart idea. Compared to chicken or beef it has way fewer calories. The protein is high, and the fish contains iron, calcium, niacin and a ton of other things. For 3 oz- Around 93 calories, 1 gram of fat, 0 carbs, and 20 grams of protein. You can buy it fresh, or frozen. Either way it makes a great choice for dinner!
*Note like some fish, mahi does contain a small amount of mercury. FDA suggests not eating over 24 oz of mahi in over a 30 day period. So once a week is great!
