Availability: Caught and available all year round.
Shelf life: Best consumed on arrival or within 3 days of receiving product.
Fish for your health: White fleshed fish is traditionally high in protein and low in fat. However, all fish, including Mahi Mahi provide an excellent source of Omega 3, which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and maintaining a healthy circulatory system.
Suggested wines: A dry, tangy white wine, with citrus notes, such a Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc, works well with Mahi Mahi. Alternatively Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio is a crowd-pleasing choice for its easy drinkability on its own as well as its crisp, dry character.
