you can't get fresh mahi mahi anywhere this far from the ocean. it is all flash frozen and thawed out to appear fresh.

Just marveling that you can get it for $4/lb frozen. That's dirt cheap.

I bought the frozen mahi mahi fillets from Costco once...was underwhelmed, but I think that's more of a reflection on the type of fish than anything. I did not like the texture or flavour of it.

I had mahi mahi in St. Lucia and loved it. So much more flavourful and plump than the fish here. Overall, I learned that Saltwater fish is much better than fresh water fish, which we have been sold as being great here, but really is flavourless.

No Frills has low quality but wild mahi mahi and pink salmon on this week. Chinese origin, works out to $4/lb.

I tried both tonight, sous vide 20 minutes, 55 C.

The salmon was barely acceptable. Sinewy, but at least it didn't smell.

The mahi mahi had a smell, a dull color, and poor texture. It was dry tasting, yet soggy at the same time.

I left a big pile of leftovers for the feral cats. It'll be gone by midnight.

tried buying "Fresh" cod from Costco once, it smelled and texture was off. Trashed the whole pack of fish.
Never buying fish from Costco again!

I have had good cod, haddock, trout, and salmon from Costco in London and Ajax. Maybe it depends on which place. In some places, I pierce the tray and smell before buying.

Bump. Anyone know where to find Mahi Mahi in 2021? (Given I won't be travelling south anytime soon).

If you want to save money and watch your weight. i suggest just getting one mahi.

Yes, I think I'll have the mahi-mahi, but can I get it with just one mahi? Because I'm not that hungry.
