What is wahoo?

Wahoo is a scombrid fish found in tropical and subtropical seas. In Hawaii, it’s called “ono,” meaning “good to eat.”

My husband catches it in Mexico where its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize fish.

Its firm white flaky flesh is the perfect texture for grilling. Its delicate flavor is often compared to chicken or veal.

You can find fresh wahoo at your local fish market or international market.
